I did not have the "extras" installed from rpmfusion. I have now. And now I have. vlc-core-3.0.0-0.48.git20180109.rc5.fc27.x86_64 vlc-extras-3.0.0-0.48.git20180109.rc5.fc27.x86_64 vlc-3.0.0-0.48.git20180109.rc5.fc27.x86_64 > Aside from that, if I run vlc with no arguments, it does start and I > can then view a video.

Another difference is when you run from the command line you get... VLC media player 3.0.0-rc6 Vetinari (revision 3.0.0-rc5-7-g0c462fc53e) while I get VLC media player 3.0.0-rc5 Vetinari (revision 3.0.0-rc5-0-gf53236af09) Oh, you mention "fedora-multimedia". Is that an actual fedora sponsored repo or a 3rd party repo like rpmfusion? I ask since I've not heard of that one. -- A motto of mine is: When in doubt, try it out
