VLC media player: Ubuntu/Debian Backports (LTS)

PPA description

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:n-muench/vlc2

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 Precise/Raring

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:
   -Build using existing Ubuntu/Debian packaging (based-on packaging will be listed in changelog)
   -Any MAJOR bugs should be sent to be me directly (don't create a bug report on Launchpad or with developer)
   -Package has been backported from Debian (depending on program, Ubuntu will autosync release with Debian)
   -Bugs may be reported to Debian, but you should check my changelog to see if I added anything before doing so.
   -Package has been backported from the upcoming Ubuntu release (I use this numbering method so when you update to the new Ubuntu release, my packages are replaced with what's in the main Ubuntu release)
   -Bugs may be reported to Ubuntu (using Launchpad), but you should check my changelog to see if I added anything before doing so.

*fonts-freefont: Needed for VLC (2.0.3-3 and later)
*gpac: Needed for x264
*opus: Needed for VLC (2.0.4-1 and later)
*libsoxr: Needed for Audacity (2.0.3 and later)

DEPENDENCIES STAYING UP TO DATE (everything else will be added as it's needed):
