Try opening a Terminal window and run these commands:

sudo apt-get remove --purge vlc
sudo apt-get install vlc
0

Hey friend try following Command

sudo apt-get install -f

It will remove the dependency problem And then go to software center nad type vlc in searh box and then install it.

If you want to install by command line then Simply type

sudo apt-get install vlc* -y
  • this will not solve the problem. – JoKeR May 10 '15 at 22:42
