Ubuntu – How to install VLC 2.2.1 in Ubuntu 15.04


I want to install VLC 2.2.1 which is the current stable version.

I've followed the instructions from How to update VLC to the latest version? but it only installs VLC 2.2.0 which is the same version than the one from the Ubuntu Software Center :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:videolan/stable-daily
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install vlc

Best Answer

You can achive this with n-muench vlc ppa but do read all the warnings and notations from the PPA, as you'll be taking any risk for any damages at your own risk.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:n-muench/vlc
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

This will upgrade your installed vlc version to 2.2.1 if you don't have any installed then after the above commands run:

sudo apt-get install vlc
