Have you tried sudo apt-get install vlc in terminal? Any Errors? – prophecy201 Jun 21 '13 at 10:47

you can install vlc-media player directly from Ubuntu Software center.

open your unity dash and type as Software-center then in the search box type as vlc and thats it you will get it listed and by clicking install you can install it fine with out any problems.
