Hi, im having some problems installing the development version of VLC.

I've added the repository as it asked for Hardy, but now i don't know what to do as the instructions have ended.

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
should update the packages and install the latest nightly build

thank you

and i also found this guide that worked perfectly

i have invested a small chunk of my life to installing this program and i cannot see any difference to the default version i already have. I can't get mouse gestures to work or any of the other things i thought would be included in this package
