How to install VLC on Lubuntu 17.10

Lubuntu 17.10 comes with GNOME MPV as default movie/video player, that's fine. But if you watching movie a lot on your computer, i would recommend using VLC as your main video player for better movie experience.

Not only can playback high definition video smoothly, VLC media player also support subtitle and a bunch other cool features. You can't go wrong with VLC really.

How to install VLC on Lubuntu 17.10
  • open command line/terminal on lubuntu
  • run update command
  • sudo apt-get update
  • install multimedia codec
  • sudo apt-get install lubuntu-restricted-extras
  • install VLC
  • sudo apt-get install vlc
  • done!

Once installed, you can open VLC from lubuntu start menu > Sound & Video > VLC Media Player, or you just choose any movie/video and do right click mouse button and select VLC media player.
