    This ppa does not contain vlc version 2.1.0. It contains a “daily build of stable branch”. This is something different.

    I agree. I added the videolan/stable-daily ppa and the version I got after doing an apt-get update and apt-get install vlc was 2.0.9-2flower. Has 2.1 been uploaded yet?

    Hi everyone,

    Today VLC 2.1 is still NOT available for Ubuntu 13.10 through this PPA!

    I did run the indicated commands and I just received 2.0.9 “Twoflower”, not the 2.1.x.

    We are now next to late november and a simple search on Google shows that there is still a problem between VLC and Ubuntu…… All other distros and even Windows and mac OS X do run VLC 2.1.x but not Ubuntu. Why? This is a very good question.
