    first two are the official PPA's , First one is the Stable, when it comes to PPA's you want to stay as close to Official as possible – Sumeet Deshmukh Apr 14 '17 at 10:49

  • The 1st. & last ppa's you mentioned don't have builds for 17.04. (- The last one is pretty much dead anyway. So only the middle one supports 17.04. The vlc provided in 17.04 from Ubuntu repos is pretty much the latest stable version, the middle ppa is for vlc-3.x which is still being developed – doug Apr 14 '17 at 12:18
