It’s not updating here. I think the problem is in the adding of the key:

Executing: gpg –ignore-time-conflict –no-options –no-default-keyring –secret-keyring /etc/apt/secring.gpg –trustdb-name /etc/apt/trustdb.gpg –keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg –recv-keys –keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 7613768D
gpg: requesting key 7613768D from hkp server keyserver.ubuntu.com
gpg: key 7613768D: “Launchpad PPA named vlc for Christoph Korn” not changed

When I do update and install, it says that it’s already the newest version (which is 0.9.9a and not 1.0.0). Hope someone can help me out! I’m a big fan of VLC!
And for Hardy user what is the solution ?
In Intrepid, you get version 0.9.9a Grishenko instead of 1.0.
Wanted to do it but it wanted to install many libqt4-* packages… So I didnot do it… Is it normal ? Why does it requires those packages where previous version of VNC did not require them ?
I found out the problem. I mixed up the Ubuntu versions. I run Jaunty not Intrepid =D Quick change in the repo’s and it’s done!
Ubuntu 9.04 64bit
If you have problem like me with no video output but with sound,there is a way to fix it.
Try changing the output module of vlc player to open gl.
This option by going in tools> preferences>video>output module there first check advanced options and then change the module to opengl.
It did the trick for me.
Installed fine on Jaunty and the video plays smoothly. However the sound goes on and off about once per second. Tried all the various sound output devices, and is now set to PulseAudio which works fine elsewhere. Any ideas?
I don’t know if you still have the problem with sound, but what I did is: go to preferences, expand audio, and uncheck the momno conversion filter. It worked for me… I hope it does the trick for you too.
Very detailed instructions are given in the vlc’s website. Just do a google search for ‘vlc’ or/and goto the download page(http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html). You will see the instructions.
While installing on Ubuntu would be one of the simplest, others are not that hard either.
An article is needed, just to install a video player in Ubuntu? Either this is more astroturf or Ubuntu is trying to become Slackware.

Try installing it on openSuSE, it’s only one one click in the package manager (add community repositories and choose VideoLAN) Or you use the One-click install provided by the Videolan page.
It is a big problem.you can’t use software in ubuntu software center without updating your system with the help of update manager.
thank u very much brother
