vlc_installer Flattr this

Downloads and install the VLC media player available at http://www.videolan.org/.

vlc_installer looks in the directory where vlc_installer.exe is for any files it needs before attempting to download them. If it does download a file, it will attempt to save a copy of the file in this same directory.

vlc_installer adds the installation directory to your PATH environment variable. On 32-bit systems, this directory is usually C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC. On 64-bit systems, this directory is usually C:\Program Files(x86)\VideoLAN\VLC.

Usage

vlc_installer [options]

Options:
/S         Install the application silently with the default options selected
/D=path    Install into the directory 'path' (default is
           %ProgramFiles(x86)%\VideoLAN)
/INSTYPE n Where n is a number between 1 and 2:
            1: All - VLC 32-bit - All Windows versions
            2: All - VLC 64-bit (Experimental) - All Windows 64-bit versions

Verify a Release

To verify a release, download the .zip, .sha256, and .asc files for the release (replacing vlc_installer-2.2.2-win32.zip with the release you are verifying):

$ wget https://github.com/rasa/vlc_installer/releases/download/v2.2.2/vlc_installer-2.2.2-win32.zip{,.sha256,.asc}

Next, check that sha256sum reports "OK":

$ sha256sum -c vlc_installer-2.2.2-win32.zip.sha256
vlc_installer-2.2.2-win32.zip: OK

Lastly, check that GPG reports "Good signature":

$ gpg --keyserver hkps.pool.sks-keyservers.net --recv-key 0x105a5225b6ab4b22
$ gpg --verify vlc_installer-2.2.2-win32.zip.asc vlc_installer-2.2.2-win32.zip
gpg:                using RSA key 0xFF914F74B4BB6EF3
gpg: Good signature from "Ross Smith II <ross@smithii.com>" [ultimate]
