    I use VLC for video. Because VLC clips/stutters on my Dell D600/Ubuntu 10.04 system when playing FLAC and MP3 files, I use Gnome MPlayer for audio-only files.

    I upgraded VLC to version 1.1.4 using the instructions above and it broke MPlayer. Now when I click on play, nothing happens. So I removed and re-installed MPlayer, but that didn’t fix it.

    Your mplayer broke because this PPA has new versions of ffmpeg that support VA-API (hw accel) but which break older apps.

    One Time when I down loaded VLC Media player Iwas given the option to make it the Default player . This time when I downloaded the player this option was not provided. Could you please tell me how to make VLC Media player the default player over Windows media player. Cheers…. Les Hodgson
