    VLC has never worked in Fedora 27 Cinnamon Spin.

    Hi there,

    Since a fresh installation of Fedora 27 Cinnamon Spin, I have never been able to get VLC to work within this OS. I have to use "mpv Media Player" for watching media. This is how I installed my VLC 3.0.0-git Vetinari.

    su -
    dnf install https://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm
    dnf install vlc
    dnf install python-vlc npapi-vlc

    My current kernel is Linux 4.13.16-302.fc27.x86_64
    NVIDIA 304.137
    Compaq Presario F763NR

    I hope someone can help.

    Can you stop prefixing all your issues with cinnamon please?, are you trying to make me look bad

    I have done the 'sudo dnf update', just now, and I can see the nvidia version, that you mentioned coming in.
