F29 Problems with VirtualBox installation and repository

I've recently switched from Manjaro 18 to Fedora 29 - funnily enough mainly because of problems with VirtualBox -. After configuring most of the system to my liking, I tried to install VirtualBox, but encountered a few problems keeping me from getting it onto my machine.

First, I tried to add Oracles yum/dnf repo for VirtualBox. I added the repo according to this guide, however, it failed to synchronize. Then, I tried to install the package from the VB website locally through dnfdragora. It did not succeed since a dependency, libvpx.so.4, could not be found.

I will add that I am experiencing two obvious bugs which others have already reported with Fedora 29:

Alltough they probably (especially the first one) have got nothing to do with this.

Any advice?
