As usual its way more complicated than it needs to be. Having a million and one repos for separate apps just makes it more and more complicated, ppa this ppa that etc.

Debian - apt-get install vlc
Installed: 1.0.1-1
Candidate: 1.0.1-1
Version table:
1.0.1-1 0
990 sid/main Packages
Wow that was hard.
