vlc player on Fedora rawhide

VLC video player is not yet available via dnf in Fedora development release ( aka rawhide ), I am using Fedora rawhide and I at same time I need VLC player ( not to spend much time ranting about how there is not good player out of box in Fedora rawhide )
If you have same issue, follow below steps to get VLC with Fedora rawhide.
I cheated a bit and get Fedora 23 VLC packages on rawhide.

from rpmfusion web
You will need


once you try to install these packages, there will be conflicts regarding freerdp-libs and libwinpr packages.
You will need to delete them, and get ones for Fedora 23 from any of Fedora mirrors ( eg. Fedora mirror )
Once you have all packages run below to install them

# rpm -ivh freerdp-libs-1.2.0-0.9.git.24a752a.fc23.x86_64.rpm vlc-* libwinpr-1.2.0-0.9.git.24a752a.fc23.x86_64.rpm

Enjoy VLC!

Ohter option is to install it from source. I tried that too, it failed due to missing dependencies which I tried to fix and gave up once I opened vlc configure file which has more than 35k of lines…but if you have time …
