VideoLAN and the VLC development team present VLC 1.1.11, a security release with some other improvements. This release was necessary due to two security issues in the real and avi demuxers. It also contains improvements in the fullscreen mode of the Win32 mozilla plugin, the MacOSX Media Key handling and Auhal audio output as well as bug fixes in GUI, decoders and demuxers..
To install VLC 1.1.11 open a terminal window (press Ctrl+Alt+T) and copy+paste the following lines:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ferramroberto/vlc
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install vlc mozilla-plugin-vlc vlc-plugin-pulse
To start VLC press Alt+F2 and type: vlc
If you already have VLS and the ppa installed, VLC will updated to the latest version when running a system update.
