VLC media player: Backported from Ubuntu/Debian

PPA description

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:n-muench/vlc

This PPA has VLC Media Player and it's dependencies. As well as other packages/programs so they build against these newer deps in this repo.

All packages are backported either Debian unstable/experimental or Ubuntu Utopic

THIS PPA MIGHT BREAK OTHER PACKAGES (it shouldn't (since they're backported with minimal changes), but someone recommended that I should note it anyways)

Debian/Ubuntu Versioning:
   -Built using existing Ubuntu/Debian packaging (check my changelog for more
   -Any MAJOR bugs should be sent to be me directly (don't file bug report
    with the developer (or Debian/Ubuntu))
   -Package has been backported from Debian (depending on program, Ubuntu
    will autosync release with Debian)
   -Bugs may be reported to Debian, but check my changelog for any
    additional information
   -Package backported from next Ubuntu release. When upgrading to next
    release, PPA package will be overridden by Ubuntu Main's package
   -Bugs may be reported to Ubuntu (using Launchpad), check my changelog for
    any additional information before doing so.
