VLC for fedora 22


Hi,

On my windows boxes I use YawCam to view ip cameras or a USB camera on my PC, to iSpy.
I want to do this with a USB cam on my Fedora 22 box. (have it stream to iSpy)

I was told VLC can do this, but everywhere I've tried to down load and install, I can't get VLC. I've tried dng install vlc and a few others, no luck.

So my question is can someone show me the easy steps to install VLC (or any other tool that will act as YawCam does to stream my web cam on fedora 22)

Thanks James.

Hi James...

That's strange. What's happening exactly and what, if any, error messages are you getting?

Regards...

Everything looks normal...says download complete.....but, nothing is there!
I could see on one PC...but, all 4...I'll try a 5th one...yep, same thing.
I even tried •RPM Fusion free for Fedora 20 and •RPM Fusion free for Fedora 21...all same issue.

Hi...

Out of curiosity, what happens when you try to install VLC from Fedora's repositories using YUM or DNF?

Also, what browser are you using? Can you duplicate this using another browser?

Regards...

I've tried internet exp., google chrome and firefox...all same.

dnf install vlc
Last metadata expiration check performed 1:17:37 ago on Sun Jun 7 18:55:08 2015.
No package vlc available.
Error: no package matched: vlc
[root@localhost ~]#


yum instal vlc
Yum command has been deprecated, redirecting to '/usr/bin/dnf instal vlc'.
See 'man dnf' and 'man yum2dnf' for more information.
To transfer transaction metadata from yum to DNF, run:
'dnf install python-dnf-plugins-extras-migrate && dnf-2 migrate'

No such command: instal. Please use /usr/bin/dnf --help
It could be a DNF plugin command, try: "dnf install 'dnf-command(instal)'"

Hi...

If you're experiencing this with both operating systems, then I'm guessing this is some kind of hardware issue. What exactly, I'm not sure at this point.

EDIT: From here, does this command work?

Code:
sudo dnf install vlc -y
Regards...

It can't be a hardware issue, its just a download...and this has been 2 different op sys, 3 different browsers and on 5 different PC...all of which work fine for everything else. What does it do for you? I suspect its an issue on their end, odds are it will do the same for you too.

Hi...

Look at the "Edit" in my previous post, perhaps that command might help. If you want to give me the link to where you are trying to download from, I can give it a try, even though I use Lubuntu.

Regards...

I am trying from the below link...the only one I know of:

http://rpmfusion.org/Configuration/

Then:
RPM Fusion free for Fedora 22

Below is what I get when I did from your "Edit"


sudo dnf install vlc -y
Last metadata expiration check performed 2:11:15 ago on Sun Jun 7 18:55:08 2015.
No package vlc available.
Error: no package matched: vlc
[root@localhost ~]#

Also tried

sudo dnf install --nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/...-22.noarch.rpm
Last metadata expiration check performed 2:15:13 ago on Sun Jun 7 18:55:08 2015.
Curl error (6): Couldn't resolve host name for http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/...-22.noarch.rpm [Could not resolve host: download1.rpmfusion.org]
[root@localhost ~]#

Hi...

I see what you mean now, I've tried downloading from the link you mentioned with both my laptop and desktop systems (Windows Vista and Lubuntu 14.04) using IE 9, Firefox and Chrome and get the same result as you, files with absolutely nothing in them! Wow.

Yes, I would agree that some kind of problem exists on their site...

How about this command?

Code:
$> su -
#> rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm
#> dnf install vlc
I'll keep poking around for a possible download site or a command that works, Lord willing, if this doesn't.

Thank you for working with me on this and posting the results of my suggestions, even if you've tried them before.

Regards...

Yes, I tried that and several other things before I opened this thread. I'm going to try to submit a bug

Hi James...

After looking at this thread in Fedora's forum, it seems that things aren't ready yet for F22.

However, if you have a Facebook, Google, Instagram or Twitter account, you can get a tarball of vlc for F22 here.

Let us know how it goes...

Regards...

Hmm........I didn't need any account to get it.....but its a "vlc_and_freerdp1_fc22.tar.exe" file. Not sure what to do with this...will have to play around.
Hope its not a virus.

I wouldn't think so but you can run it through an online virus scanner to make sure.

I've tried everything I know to open "vlc_and_freerdp1_fc22.tar.exe"........no luck, unless you have an idea.
I ran it as vlc_and_freerdp1_fc22.tar.exe in windows, it fails, renamed it to vlc_and_freerdp1_fc22.tar and did tar -xvf no luck

I don't know what else to try, maybe run it as a .exe in Linux, from terminal...not sure how to do that (FYI I'm a beginner in Linux)
