Try using yum and see if your distro has them prepacked

Quote:
# yum search ffmpeg
# yum search lua
After you find what packages you need then
# yum install packagename
hope this helps

Welcome to LQ.

Installing vlc on Fedora 13-14 : # yum install vlc
http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-fedora.html

But I don't think it will work on an obsolete Fedora 11.
( Fedora 11 has been moved to "the old archive".)
VLC requires about 50 other packages to be installed,
before you can use it. ( Or build it.)

The 'RealPlayer 11 Gold Linux' has no dependencies :

I think for yum you need to configure 3rd party repositories first,

if'

# yum install vlc

doesn't work on your PC, then configure 3rd party repos like this.

@ ashish_neekhra : All the repos in your link are for CentOS / EL5
http://vlinux-freak.blogspot.com/201...yum-repos.html
... none are usable for Fedora (11).

The 3rd party repository for vlc is included in the vlc link.
Please read post # 3 (again).

Quote:
..... repository :fedora - source
The source repo , [fedora-source] , name=Fedora $releasever - Source
in the file fedora.repo : Please edit 'enable=1' to 'enable=0'
Or just delete all the lines in this paragraph.

I.e. none of the old URLs are valid any more.

Open : Do you mean run, as execute. ?

Or do you want to read binary files ?

binary files are compiled files for a computer to understand. They are called binary because they are based on the binary number system which is only 0 and 1's. You can't read and understand them.
