Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

While it is true that the post is old, the information I provided was still relevant and well formatted for anyone searching how to install VLC.
IMO most people would be searching the forum to see if their question was already asked or answered, and for those that will search, this howto will show em exactly what they need to do (hence the difference between the others post above, which provide half or only part of the instruction to accomplish this.)
That basicly why I took 15-20 minutes to put this up and hope to help not only the OP, but anyone looking to use VLC. VLC really rock, it is free, and there so much thing you can do with it, such as streaming and watching security camera and much more. They deserve a proper howto instruction on how people can use it
