vlc 1.0.0

Final as in 'non release candidate', obviously there will be versions like 1.0.1 and so on.

Installing VLC 1.0.0 in Ubuntu

I wrote some time ago about a repository which had the VLC 1.0 RC for Ubuntu, but for now that repository has only has been updated to VLC 1.0 RC4. Thanks to OcioLinux I found a PPA repository that has the latest VLC 1.0.0. To add this repo, paste this in a terminal:

-For Ubuntu Jaunty Jackalope:
sudo sh -c "echo 'deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/c-korn/vlc/ubuntu jaunty main' >> /etc/apt/sources.list"

-For Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex:
sudo sh -c "echo 'deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/c-korn/vlc/ubuntu intrepid main' >> /etc/apt/sources.list"

-For Ubuntu Hardy Heron:
sudo sh -c "echo 'deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/c-korn/vlc/ubuntu hardy main' >> /etc/apt/sources.list"

Then import the GPG key (any of the above Ubuntu version):
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 7613768D

And then:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install vlc vlc-plugin-esd mozilla-plugin-vlc
