I want to get vls latest version safely. I have brew.How could I type to terminal ? I dont wanna download it from a website since it may not be safe


curl -O http://mirror.de.leaseweb.net/videolan/vlc/2.1.2/macosx/vlc-2.1.2.dmg This is the official OS X build by Felix Kuehne, the main OS X VLC maintainer; I doubt 3rd party repositories host OS X / Cocoa specific builds like this one.

  • I typed to terminal curl -O mirror.de.leaseweb.net/videolan/vlc/2.1.2/macosx/vlc-2.1.2.dmg I think it is installed but I could not find it. I typed which vlc but terminal says nothing – Meva Jan 30 '14 at 15:55
  • You will find it in the current directory (the directory from which you ran the command). The file will be called vlc-2.1.2.dmg and inside it (type open vlc-2.1.2.dmg if in doubt) you'll find vlc.app. What I gave you is basically code for downloading it from an official VLC mirror though. – foxx1337 Jan 30 '14 at 17:39
