No package <foo> available


Hi
Can anyone share the correct solution when you are trying to install an app but get a 'No package foo available' error?

Does this simply mean you need to install another repository?

For instance, on Centos 7 with epel and elrepo repositories, I am simply trying to install ffmpeg, vlc

I get the following

Code:
[foo@foo ~]$ sudo yum install vlc
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
 * base: centos.bhs.mirrors.ovh.net
 * elrepo: ca.mirror.babylon.network
 * epel: mirror.steadfast.net
 * extras: centos.bhs.mirrors.ovh.net
 * updates: centos.bhs.mirrors.ovh.net
No package vlc available.
Error: Nothing to do
[foo@foo ~]$

Yes you would have to install another repo.
See the link for Centos 6 & 7.-
