    When I type this command, the RPi tells me “not found” I tried to research the real directory and indeed, it changed.
    How do I do to tell the RPi to install vlc from the real directory?

    Hi, Yesterday, I installed VLC on rapsberry quite smoothly by the following easy steps:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    sudo apt-get install vlc

    The problem is that when I run a movie in VLC, speed of movie is not fluent and CPU is on 100%.
    It seems that hardware acceleration is not working despite the fact it should have been.

    Any suggestion to solve the problem.
