comment How to install VLC 2.2 in Ubuntu 14.04?
@oche: Instructions on how to install the PPA can be found with a single click on the PPA's page itself (right alongside all the appropriate warnings and a quick description of what a PPA is.) It's better that users see that information before installing a PPA than simply getting used to copy-pasting commands which add untrusted 3rd-party repositories to their systems..

@doug Yes - this Ubuntu PPA, when used on Mint, breaks DeSmuME.

This works on Mint 17.1, but be warned: you're not supposed to use Ubuntu PPAs with Mint. This PPA for the most part does not break anything, but if you want to install DeSmuME (or other such programs with version-specific X-related library dependencies,) you'll enter APT hell: Dependency Edition.

comment How can I cleanly remove PulseAudio in Ubuntu 14.04?
Just so you know: if PulseAudio isn't working, most media players can use ALSA directly. (Preferences > Simple > Audio > Output Module in VLC; MPlayer can be run with -ao alsa.) PulseAudio doesn't work on my Netbook, but using those audio woks without a problem.

comment Cannot play media on Acer Aspire One AO751h
AAND it was actually the audio that was choking up video playback (PulseAudio is the culprit here). I can play videos now as long as I re-encode then with H.264 -tune fastdecode or XVid encoding, remember to force my video player to use ALSA output, and disable Xv video output.
