The VLC team shares two PPAs which can be used to get a more recent version of the program on Ubuntu.

If you want the most recent stable release:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:videolan/stable-daily
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install vlc

If you want the bleeding edge release:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:videolan/master-daily
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install vlc

Tried with: Ubuntu 14.04
