thanks for link. i was late checking it, which i just finished.

that link is for oos. i am running centos 6.5.

seems that all software i found at gofree is for oos. at least from
searching that i did. even tho linux is mentioned in description text,
no downloads show linux.

i did find a link at gofree.com that lead to videolan.org, which lead
to rpm.pbone.net, where i found binary rpms for fedora and other os's,
but none for centos.

so, it looks like if i want vlc for centos, i will have to try compile
source. not looking forward to such right now.

also, please excuse delay in reply. i had surgery this morning and
i crashed after i got back home.


peace out.

in a world with out fences, who needs gates.
