Установка VLC в Ubuntu

Установка VLC в Ubuntu

VLC или Video LAN Client — это кроссплатформенный медиаплеер с открытым исходным кодом, который поддерживает воспроизведение различных аудио и видеофайлов, среди которых mpeg, mpeg-2, mpeg-4, wmv, mp3, dvd, vcd, ogg/vorbis, mov, divx, quicktime, а также потоковое воспроизведение медиа из онлайн-источников, таких как Youtube и других подобных сайтов.

Недавно команда разработчиков выпустила новую версию плеера VLC 2.2.4 с множеством важных улучшений и исправлений. В этой статье будет рассмотрена установка VLC Ubuntu 20.04 и других основанных на Ubuntu дистрибутивах.

1. VLC

VLC Media Player (VideoLAN) — универсальный кроссплатформенный медиаплеер. Представляет собой интегрированный проигрыватель все в одном. Проигрывает различные форматы файлов: MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, XviD, mp3, ogg и другие, обычные DVD и VCD диски. Одной из особенностей является возможность проигрывания практически любого типа потокового видео.

Может быть использован в качестве сервера для трансляции потока по протоколам IPv4 или IPv6, при условии достаточной скорости сети. Не требует установки никаких дополнительных кодеков, так как все компоненты уже содержатся в нем. Так же стоит отметить уникальность данного плеера в том, что вы здесь можете увеличить громкость не на 100%, а на целых 150%, будьте осторожны и не угробьте свои колонки и слух так же.

Возможности VLC:

  • Поддержка почти всех известных форматов.
  • Поддержка громкости до 150%.
  • Интеграция с радиостанциями.
  • Запись видео.
  • Чтение видео с дисков .
  • Поддержка конвертации видео.
  • Поддержка фильтров и эффектов.
  • Поддержка большого количества модулей и расширений с помощью которых можно видоизменить как сам плеер так и добавить новые возможности.

Так же можно установить через синаптик. Откройте Синаптик(перейти в Система -> Администрирование -> Менеджер пакетов synaptic).
В поиске вводим VLC и установливаем его. Вы также можете установить плагин VLC плеера для браузера — 32-bit 64-bit.

Установка видеоплеера VLC

Откройте терминал (Ctrl+Alt+T), далее выполним следующую команду:

Удаление видеоплеера VLC

Best Linux video players

I have included the installation steps for Ubuntu but that shouldn’t make it the list of Ubuntu video players. These open source software should be available in any Linux distribution you are using.

Installing the software

Another note for Ubuntu users. You should have universe repository enabled in order to find and install these video players from the software center or by using command line. I have mentioned the commands but if you like, you can also install them from the Software Center.

Please keep in mind that the list is in no particular order of ranking.

1. VLC Media Player

  • Built-in codecs
  • Customization options
  • Cross-platform
  • Every video file format supported
  • Extensions available for added functionalities

VLC Media Player is unquestionably the most popular open source video player. Not just limited to Linux – but it’s a must-have video player for every platform (including Windows).

It is a quite powerful video player capable of handling a variety of file formats and codecs. You can customize the look of it by using skins and enhance the functionalities with the help of certain extensions. Other features like subtitle synchronization, audio/video filters, etc, exist as well.

How to install VLC?

You can easily install VLC in Ubuntu from the Software Center or download it from the official website.

If you’re utilizing the terminal, you will have to separately install the components as per your requirements by following the official resource. To install the player, just type in:

2. MPlayer

  • Wide range of output drivers supported
  • Major file formats supported
  • Cross-platform
  • Command-line based

Yet another impressive open-source video player (technically, a video player engine). MPlayer may not offer you an intuitive user experience but it supports a wide range of output drivers and subtitle files.

Unlike others, MPlayer does not offer a working GUI (it has one, but it doesn’t work as expected). So, you will have to utilize the terminal in order to play a video. Even though this isn’t a popular choice – it works and a couple of video players that I’ll be listing below are inspired (or based) from MPlayer but with a GUI.

How to install MPlayer?

We already have an article on installing MPlayer on Ubuntu and other Linux distros. If you’re interested to install this, you should check it out.

3. SMPlayer

  • Supports all major video formats
  • Built-in codecs
  • Cross-platform (Windows & Linux)
  • Play ad-free YouTube video
  • Opensubtitles integration
  • UI Customization available
  • Based on MPlayer

As mentioned, SMPlayer uses MPlayer as the playback engine. So, it supports a wide range of file formats. In addition to all the basic features, it also lets you play YouTube videos from within the video player (by getting rid of the annoying ads).

If you want to know about SMPlayer a bit more – we have a separate article here: SMPlayer in Linux.

Similar to VLC, it also comes baked in with codecs, so you don’t have to worry about finding codecs and installing them to make it work unless there’s something specific you need.

How to install SMPlayer?

SMPlayer should be available in your Software Center. However, if you want to utilize the terminal, type in this:

4. MPV Player

  • Minimalist GUI
  • Video codecs built in
  • High-quality video output by video scaling
  • Cross-platform
  • YouTube Videos supported via CLI

If you are looking for a video player with a streamlined/minimal UI, this is for you. Similar to the above-mentioned video players, we also have a separate article on MPV Player with installation instructions (if you’re interested to know more about it).

Keeping that aside, it offers what you would expect from a standard video player. You can even try it on your Windows/Mac systems.

How to install MPV Player?

You will find it listed in the Software Center or Package Manager. In either case, you can download the required package for your distro from the official download page.

If you’re on Ubuntu, you can type in this in the terminal:

5. Dragon Player

  • Simple UI
  • Tailored for KDE
  • Supports playing CDs and DVDs

This has been specifically tailored for KDE desktop users. It is a dead-simple video player with all the basic features needed. You shouldn’t expect anything fancy out of it – but it does support the major file formats.

How to install Dragon Player?

You will find it listed in the official repo. In either case, you can type in the following command to install it via terminal:

6. GNOME Videos

  • A simple video player for GNOME Desktop
  • Plugins supported
  • Ability to sort/access separate video channels

The default video player for distros with GNOME desktop environment (previously known as Totem). It supports all the major file formats and also lets you take a snap while playing a video. Similar to some of the others, it is a very simple and useful video player. You can try it out if you want.

How to install Totem (GNOME Videos)?

You can just type in “totem” to find the video player for GNOME listed in the software center. If not, you can also try utilizing the terminal with the following command:

7. Deepin Movie

If you are using Deepin OS, you will find this as your default video player for Deepin Desktop Environment. It features all the basic functionalities that you would normally look in a video player. You can try compiling the source to install it if you aren’t using Deepin.

How to Install Deepin?

You can find it in the Software Center. If you’d want to compile, the source code is available at GitHub. In either case, type in the following command in the terminal:

8. Celluloid

  • Drag and drop playlist support
  • Wayland Support
  • MPRIS2 Support for better integration with supported desktop environments
  • Simple yet customizable

I had to look at Celluloid when one of our readers suggested adding it. Interestingly, it happens to be a GTK frontend for MPV. In fact, it was previously known as GNOME MPV.

So, it supports more options to highly configure the player to fit your requirements. The UI may not be anything distinguishable but you’ll notice the options.

How to install Celluloid?

You may not find it listed in the software center. So, for any Linux distribution, you should refer to the official installation instructions.

They recommend using Flatpak. Make sure you have Flatpak enabled (refer to our guide of using Flatpak for help).

Once done, you just need to type in the following command in the terminal:

9. Parole

  • Simple and extensible via Plugins
  • Customizable

Parole is the default video player in Xfce desktop and offers a good deal of features. It supports subtitles and you can also choose to extend its functionality using the plugins available.

Of course, it’s just another video player that works – you may not notice any difference “visually” that strikes out. However, it’s a lightweight application that takes less system resources.

How to install Parole?

You need to add an unofficial PPA in order to get the latest version of Parole. You might find it listed in the Software Center but that’s not the updated version.

You can choose to download the .DEB file from the launchpad page. In either case, follow the commands below to install it:

10. Xine Multimedia Engine

  • Customization available
  • Subtitles supported
  • Major file formats supported
  • Streaming playback support

Xine is an interesting portable media player. You can either choose to utilize the GUI or call the xine library from other applications to make use of the features available.

It supports a wide range of file formats. You can customize the skin of the GUI. It supports all kinds of subtitles (even from the DVDs). In addition to this, you can take a snapshot while playing the video, which comes handy.

How to install Xine Multimedia?

You probably won’t find this in your Software Center. So, you can try typing this in your terminal to get it installed:

In addition to that, you can also check for available binary packages on their official website.

Wrapping Up

We would recommend you to try out these open source video players over anything else. In addition to all these, you can also try Miro Player which is no more being actively maintained but works – so you can give it a try, if nothing else works for you.

Snaps are absolute garbage! They don’t integrate into the system, and they make awful additional mounts, and they take a long time to start, and they keep eating up your free space, and they don’t use your existing settings, and they are just a really, really horribly implemented bad idea.

How about assisting people to install vlc 3 *properly* instead?

(Also, you need to use the –classic switch or it can’t access things like your external drives. But that won’t fix the million other problems with the snaps abomination.)

This is how I installed vlc 3, using the official bionic repo:

Add file ‘/etc/apt/preferences.d/bionic’ with:
Package: *
Pin: release a=bionic
Pin-Priority: 10

Add this line to ‘/etc/apt/sources.list’:
deb http://ee.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ bionic main restricted universe multiverse

Then upgrade ‘vlc’ manually.
There’s probably a much better way to do this (perhaps by pinning the vlc package to a version >=3), but at least this is much better than those awful snaps.

How did you manage that? It did not work on my system due to massive dependency problems – starting with libc6, wich has to be >=2.27, while xenial (16.04) comes with 2.23. And upgrading libc6 without upgrading the whole system is nearly impossible without breaking other stuff.

Try to set bionic repo as stated by Marcus then use use “apt-update” & “apt-get install vlc”

That is of course exactly what I did. Problem is that the vlc 3.0 bionic build depends on lots of stuff with higher version numbers than there are in 16.04 xenial and I don’t want to do to a release upgrade at this point.

Доброе время суток. Очень познавательная статья. Меня она очень выручила.
Осталась еще одна задумка. Вопрос такой, как не создавая ярлыка на рабочем столе, запускать приложение (Chrome, Chromium) с правами обычного пользователя?
Мне нравиться держать рабочий стол чистым. Но после создания ярлыка, как описано в статье я не могу добавить его в приложения. Есть ли способ добавить значек в «приложения», и запускать с правами обычного пользователя?
Спасибо.

Идея хорошая. Сам хотел разобраться с меню Kali Linux (например, добавить раздел Анонимность с ярлыками для перенаправления всего трафика через Tor), даже начал писать статью-инструкцию. Но это оказалось не так просто – инструменты для редактирования меню работают некорректно в Kali Linux. Поэтому приходится редактировать текстовые файлы, которые отвечают за ярлыки, категории и подкатегории, но пока я разбирался какой файл за что отвечает, у меня начали закипать мозги.

Я всё-таки разобрался с меню, добавление новых ярлыков программ в меню описано здесь: https://hackware.ru/?p=5283

здравствуйте, у меня после того как я создал юзера спрашивает пароль, при создании юзера его не спрашивали, а когда захожу в юзера и пытаюсь поставить chromium просит пароль. 0000, root,toor- не принимает. что мне сделать?
