What happened to vlc in FC29 repository?


Hello!

I just installed FC29 instead of my previous FC26 and I'm in the process
of re-installing various packages that I had in FC26.
When I attempted to install "vlc" it couldn't be found:

Code:
<root localhost>.../install_sources>dnf install vlc
Last metadata expiration check: 0:24:05 ago on Tue 05 Mar 2019 10:56:09 PM IST.
No match for argument: vlc
Error: Unable to find a match
What happened? I'm quite sure that in FC26 I could install/update vlc.

After some googling I saw few more similar problems. There was a suggestion to enable
the "updates-testing" repository but that didn't help me either.

What's the status of "vlc" on FC29: can someone install and run it?
I don't know if it's related or not but neither "avidemux" could be found by FC29.

TIA,
kaza.

Thanks jefro, it helped!

Now just out of curiocity: what has changed in FC29 compared to fc26?
I'm quite sure in fc26 I just used "dnf install vlc", without
anything else and it could be found in "rpmfusion" repository.

Thanks,
kaza.
