I would like to update to the latest version of VLC player. I have found no simple update under "about vlc" since I am a windows user and newbie to linux. Can you show me how to update in Uberstudent Heraclitus? If using command, can you type it in your reply? Thanks so much! :geek:

There is no build for VLC 2.2.4. Is there some specific feature in the latest version that you need?

Thank you for your reply. Sorry for the delay. I was hoping to be able to uses the record feature. The new version has it and had approx 80 million downloads because of this free feature. Am I pretty much out of luck getting this in Uberstudent? Do you know if the next version of Uberstudent will have a new VLC version? Or is this LTS for this distro? Thanks so much. I will say 4.3 runs great on my old notebook.Never had much of a problem with any of the pre-installed apps. Great distro!

I'll see if I can get VLC to built against the 14.04 base and release it into the repository of successful. Whatever the results, I'll release a new UberStudent LTS release near the end of the year, which will support the later VLC versions. Until then, and although I am unsure of your purpose or the specifics of the new VLC feature, would SimpleScreenRecorder, which is pre-installed in UberStudent, meet your needs?
