VLC 1.0.0 in Ubuntu

As Anoop at DailyGyan has pointed out in this post... VLC major version 1.0.0 has been released...

Here is how to install it in Ubuntu...

1. Add Repository... add these lines to /etc/apt/sources.list

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/c-korn/vlc/ubuntu jaunty main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/c-korn/vlc/ubuntu jaunty main


Change jaunty to your Ubuntu version (intrepid, hardy...)

2. Add PPA... execute the command

sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 7613768D

3. Install vlc

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -y install vlc


That's it... happy movies :)

[Update] VLC was giving Segmentation Fault in my Jaunty. If you come across same issue, just uninstall vlc and reinstall...

sudo apt-get -y remove vlc

That will fix it...

Post your experience with new VLC :)

@Senad:

So, it worked for you, right?

Do you have glitches during playing video in Ubuntu? I get a half second glitch after some 20 minutes of video, whetever player I use. Have you experienced that?

To prevent conflicts and segmentation faults, don't forget to remove the following as well:
sudo apt-get remove vlc vlc-nox vlc-data

Then install vlc and it will update vlc-nox and vlc-data as well
