Open a terminal and type:


sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install vlc

Or install it from the Ubuntu Software Center.

If you need a newer version than what's in the repo, see: https://launchpad.net/~c-korn/+archive/vlc

Just use the PPA.

If you still want to build it from source, untar it and read the README.
