    Go to the rpmfusion web site and download the vlc rpm for your version of fedora and (assuming you're doing this on another computer) copy it over to your fedora machine using a usb memory stick/drive of some kind. You can install it from the command line with 'rpm -i <packagename.rpm>'.

    You'll probably encounter dependency problems, so you'll make several trips back to the internet to get packages to satisfy them, but eventually it'll all work. For dependent packages, you'll need to specify them on the same rpm install command line as the main package, or install them before.

    It's a bit of a long-winded run around to do this, and you'd probably find it easier to hook it up to the internet and use yum. I think vlc has few dependencies, though, so you may be in luck.

    I Googled 'vlc dependencies' and got these results for errors. I'm not sure if this is a complete list of dependencies for vlc, but maybe it'll save you a few trips.

    Code:
    Missing Dependency: liba52.so.0 is needed by package videolan-client
    Missing Dependency: libvcdinfo.so.0 is needed by package videolan-client
    Missing Dependency: libmp3lame.so.0 is needed by package videolan-client
    Missing Dependency: libfaac.so.0 is needed by package videolan-client
    Missing Dependency: libmpeg2.so.0 is needed by package videolan-client
    Missing Dependency: libmad.so.0 is needed by package videolan-client
    Missing Dependency: libfaad.so.0 is needed by package videolan-client
    Missing Dependency: libopendaap.so.0 is needed by package videolan-client
    Missing Dependency: libdvbpsi.so.4 is needed by package videolan-client
    Missing Dependency: libdvdnav.so.4 is needed by package videolan-client
    Missing Dependency: libdvdread.so.3 is needed by package videolan-client

    Ahh, Missing Dependency's, i hate that....


    what you need to do is get those files first, as they are required to install VLC. what you will need to do is download those RPM files and then install them, this is a list of the files to search for.
    Code:
    liba52
    libvcdinfo
    libmp3lame
    libfaac
    libmpeg2
    libmad
    libfaad
    libopendaap
    libdvbpsi
    libdvdnav
    libdvdread
    Hopefully these dont have dependencies of their own.

    Hope this helps

    I installed online through yum through the instructions in their site and its few commands.
    I think the offline install is tough.

    Yeah, the dependencies do make for a tough time if you're offline. Glad you got it going though

    hi,
    if u are in offline, then install all dependences thru DVD, with add/remove program option,

    if still not solved try install lower version of vlc.
