I'm looking for updated VLC builds for Lucid.

I was using c-korn, but it's gone.

The PPA installable by sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ferramroberto/vlc has been set up due to the demise of c-korn and contains 1.1.4 currently. (Maverick contains 1.1.3 at present.)

For your information and future reference I found this by going to the Launchpad vlc Ubuntu package page and clicking on "Other versions of 'vlc' in untrusted archives".

  • Well, I currently have 1.1.2 so I'll probably have to wait a little longer to get updates. I keep an eye on the "Other versions" section. Thanks! Aug 29, 2010 at 18:46
  • Hmm it looks like that hint I gave you for searching isn't showing all PPAs unfortunately... (time to go file a bug) For instance the PPA installable by sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ferramroberto/vlc (contains 1.1.4) mentioned in the other answer.

  • I'v added this ppa to my 10.04 but I'm not able to have a different version of vlc, sudo apt-get install vlc give always 1.0.6. Jan 30, 2011 at 22:12

This link will give you a PPA that has VLC 1.1.4. I installed from here and have had no problems.
