Installing additional software in Fedora

Fedora includes the following yum repos by default:
1) Fedora
2) Fedora-updates
3) Fedora-updates-testing
However, if you need to install additional software that is missing in the above repos, I would recommend adding RPM Fusion repo, which will allow you to install packages such as ‘VLC’. To install the additional repo, and installing VLC, try the below:

$ sudo rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm
$ sudo yum install vlc -y
