Hi, Welcome to LQ!

LQ has a fantastic search function that may save you time waiting for an answer to a popular question.

With over 3 million posts to search it's possible the answer has been given.

Google search "vlc media player linux"

You should also install vlc-plugin-pulse, mozilla-plugin-vlc (and libdvdcss2).

If you are interrested in streaming or transcoding, you should also install libavcodec-extra-52.



Read these, and make sure you get any dependants you will require.

One other way is a magazine cdrom, like LinuxMagazine.

Cheers, Glenn
