Uninstalling Default Applications

Good morning all. I’m currently using Fedora-32 Linux, but I don’t want the default Videos Application that came pre-installed (I installed VLC). How do uninstall the Videos Application that came with Fedora-32. Thank you

Hi, I also do not like this re-branding Gnome is doing, but basically you can find out here https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/Videos/ that the apps name is actually “Totem”:

================================================================================================================================================================

This is to make it easier for new users to find the app in the overview. If you click on “preferences > help”, it says:

“Videos, also known as Totem, is an application for playing videos. You can use it to watch movies or stream media from the Internet.”

@march23: to answer your question, try:

sudo dnf remove totem

Please check the transaction to see what other packages are being removed also. I just leave the app installed here myself, even though I don’t use it.
