|Summary||0005988: Inclusion of VLC in Kali-2020.1 ?|
|Description||With the new non-root user policy set to be in the 2020.1 ISO, is it possible to reintroduce VLC media player by default?|
Before this was not possible due to VLC disallowing running as root, but now it should be possible similar to how it was in Kali-1.1.0a. The VLC package and its dependencies amount to 98.5 MB total.
What are your thoughts about this? Personally, I prefer VLC to Parole as AFAIK it supports more video/audio formats.
