Installing VLC


I am new to Linux, I used it 20 years ago and have forgot all I ever new. I have installed Fedora 22 and is working fine (I think). I have tried to install VLC Media Player using the command:

sudo dnf install vlc

and I get the following:

Np package available
Error: unable to find a match.

I am using some instructions I downloaded from the intetnet "Things to do after installing Fedora. I am at a loss of what to do. NEED SOME HELP.

Since Fedora uses Red Hat's package manager,would the command not be something like # yum-install vlc?

Hi econnelly...

Welcome to the forum

This has been a tough one for other Fedora 22 users, too. However, the solution listed in post #24 here seems to have resolved this for others.

as above rpmfusion is NOW the main repo in fedora ( and HAS BEEN )
NOW Fedora 22 moved to using " dnf" and stopped using " yum" ,but that is a small change

even the old Mjmwired guide for Fedora 19
lists RPMFusion

this has not changed for the lase few years
just using dnf has

and install the Fedora 22 repo
