I am trying to install VLC in Ubuntu 16.04. By default, the version being provided from Ubuntu universe repositories is VLC version 2.2.2. But I checked the official website of VLC ( Videolan ), there I saw the latest version is 3.0.1.
I searched online on how to install latest VLC version, I got two solutions, either use a third-party PPA or use snaps. I searched for PPA, got ppa:videolan/stable-daily which installs version 2.2.2 and ppa:videolan/master-daily which installs version 4.0.0 rc1 (please correct me if I have gone wrong anywhere here).
So, finally, I resorted to snaps, installed VLC from it using
sudo snap install vlc --classic. But the interface looked very weird to me, moreover, it downloaded 189 MB!
So is there any way to install the latest version using
apt-get, the regular way?
