Here’s is a guide to install VLC using motumedia ppa.

To install VLC, you will need to install the medibuntu-keyring, w32codecs and libdvdcss2.
For that open a terminal and type the following.

$ sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 2EBC26B60C5A2783 
$ sudo apt-get update 
$ sudo apt-get install medibuntu-keyring
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install w32codecs
$ sudo apt-get install libdvdcss2

Now add the motumedia GPG key.

$ sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys  C5D7718106438B87

Now add this line to your repository.

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/motumedia/ppa/ubuntu lucid main

Go to System->Administration->Software Sources and select the Third-Party Software tab then click the Add button and add the line there.

Now install VLC and its moxilla-plugin

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install vlc mozilla-plugin-vlc
$ sudo atp-get upgrade
