What is new in vlan 1.1.12
VideoLAN and the VLC development team present VLC 1.1.12, a bug and security fix release with improvements for audio output on Mac OS X and with PulseAudio.
This release was necessary due to a security issue in the HTTP and RTSP server components, though this does not affect standard usage of the player.
Binaries for Mac OS X and sources are available.
Install VLC 1.1.12 on ubuntu 11.10/11.04
Open the terminal and run the following commands
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:n-muench/vlc
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install vlc mozilla-plugin-vlc
