VLC media player for FreeBSD

Install VLC through the Ports Collection

VLC is included in the Ports Collection of the FreeBSD operating system. So you can simply install VLC with pkg_add.

However you will get a very bare-bone version of VLC. We recommend you to compile it with the following command:

# cd /usr/ports/multimedia/vlc && make install clean
