I changed repos into synaptic from scid to testing -- VLC is installed now and it is working fine.

Thanks!

Note that you have a stretch-updates repo as well as an "unstable" one, which is "sid".
Repos:
Active apt repos in: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/antix.list
1: deb http://repo.antixlinux.com/sid sid main nosystemd
2: deb-src http://repo.antixlinux.com/sid sid main nosystemd
Active apt repos in: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian-stable-updates.list
1: deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ stretch-updates main contrib non-free
Active apt repos in: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian.list
1: deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free
So if you changed the antix nosystemd ones to testing, but left your debian repos unchanged, conflicts may happen again .

I just noticed that that VLC 3.0.2 has now appeared as a Stretch update, but has an odd versioning that leaves it lower than the antiX and test repo versions. I guess we can remove ours from the test repo now, though, and go with Debian's...unless the antiX version will then be installed. Let me check.

Edit: I hope they rebuilt phonon-backend-vlc against the new version, or they can cause some grief.
