Is there any PPA for to update VLC to 2.0 version in Ubuntu 10.04? If not how can I update it. I have already tried this ppa

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:n-muench/vlc2
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install vlc

and it never works. It just gives the 1.1.13 version.

Similar to this answer here this should work for you also… – Ringtail Feb 20 '12 at 19:53
I agree the down vote doesn't make much sense so I up voted to balance. I would suggest you try and install VLC 2.0 from source. – kingmilo Feb 20 '12 at 19:54
Up voted your question. Makes complete sense. – nik90 Feb 20 '12 at 22:13

From the VLC pages

Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04 LTS

VLC version 1.0.6 in Ubuntu 10.04 is out-of-date. We recommend you install VLC 1.1.x manually.

If you wish to install VLC 1.0.6 anyway, please refer to the instructions above for Ubuntu 10.10. Note that there will be some bugs; you are on your own.

At your OWN risks, install VLC from PPA:

Command line way

% sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lucid-bleed/ppa
% sudo apt-get update
% sudo apt-get install vlc vlc-plugin-pulse mozilla-plugin-vlc

Op would like to know how to install 2.0 if that is possible, your answer is perfect but does not fit the request from him. – Bruno Pereira May 22 '12 at 15:41

Currently there's no ppa for VLC 2.0 for Ubuntu 10.04. The mentioned ppa is only for Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric, as it says.

Yes, thats why I asked is there any other PPA or any other way to install. For the fellow who marked this question -1, you need to understand the question first. – geiser Feb 20 '12 at 19:41

Add the PPA ppa:n-muench/vlc2 to your system

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:n-muench/vlc2

Install / upgrade vlc

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install vlc

PPA does not contain vlc2, it contains the package vlc - 1.1.13-1~ppa1. – Bruno Pereira Feb 20 '12 at 21:25
