This is my first post on VLC media player.Recently a question was asked by a newbie to me. His question was , how to install VLC media player on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.
There are two methods to install VLC Media player
1. By using Graphical interface (from “Ubuntu Software Centre”)
2. By using command line
Install VLC by using command line
We mostly prefer commandline. Because it is fast,simple and for learning. Use below command to install VLC
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install vlc browser-plugin-vlc
After installation get completed. Go to the dash home and search for VLC.
On first time of VLC opening, it will ask acceptance for “Privacy and Network Access policy”. Click on “Continue” button.
Now VLC will open. Watch your videos and listen music with awesome VLC media player.
