How to install VLC on a Chromebook


Today we are looking at how to install VLC Media Player on a Chromebook.  Please follow the video below, for a visual and audio guide.  

We start the process by enabling Linux Apps in our system settings, after that we copy/paste the two commands, the commands below, into our Linux Terminal and run it.  That is it and VLC is installed.

Ps.  If preferred a person can also download the mobile version of VLC from the Play Store.

Command Used:
sudo apt install vlc

Update:  In Chrome OS 83 Linux Apps has an option now, not seen in this video as it was recorded before Chrome OS 83, to choose a username for your Linux Apps,  it is completely optional and you can just press on the install option to continue, as seen in the video.  Please send us a comment on YouTube if you need assistance!
