Well theres nothing wrong with your source list.I added vlc repo to my list and updated.and it updated fine..so its not a problem with vlc site.You should be able to update the list.You reaally dont need the vlc site to get vlc..its in debian's sid repo's..youll need vlc repo if you need libdvdcss .Either im blind and not seeing the error in your vlc source list or there isnt any error.Because it looks right to me.Try to update again.If you have been using apt-get stick with that..but try it with aptitude..aptitude update
Probably wont make a differnce..
deb http://download.videolan.org/pub/videolan/debian sid main
deb-src http://download.videolan.org/pub/videolan/debian sid main
I copied the source list just to compare..easier than jumping back between this site and vlc..
Your getting a 404 error because there is no amd64 package list..
Its not that it cant connect to it..it doesnt exist..are you on a 64bit system?
Maybe try apt-get clean and then try apt-get update again..

Yes u'r right, it doesn't make any difference.
aptitude update produces the same error ...

Err http://download.videolan.org sid/main Packages
404 Not Found

I don't know if it is important, but i have already installed the package
debian-multimedia-keyring_2008.10.16_all.deb in order to get a flash-mozilla-plugin from debian-multimedia.org repo in my browser.
This application has introduced new keys in my synaptics. Do U Think it has something to do ?
By the way the vlc version from Debian/Lenny repo is: 0.8.6h and it is fine! But this is not the last one ...

Thanks you for your effort!

that keyring i believe is more of a security thing.With out it when you downloaded anything from the site. debian-multimedia.org...apt-get would say you are downloading a untrusted package,,and you have to enter yes to proceed..i dont think the keyring would cause this .Maybe Im wrong though.the one in testing is vlc 0.8.6h-4..sid has version 0.8.6h-5..Maybe some with more knowledgde can tell you why its doing it on your system and not mine.Just dont install any media apps from debian-multimedia.org..like mplayer..theres a compatability issue.it will cause vlc not to work anymore..youll get sound but no video..I had to downgrade alot of plugins to get vlc to work again..I would just use debina-multimedia for things like flash,java,libdvdcss,w32codecs..and then disable it..

farslayer hi!
What exactly do you mean ? If i understood well, shouldn't we have post all these in this thread? After all, it is about vlc ... What is OP ?
Please forgive my ignorance!

Yes I aleady know that ...
I run into similar isues stratotak. Only the plugin is from debian-multimedia.org. I have installed vlc and the related libs only from Lenny's Repo, after some clean-up of the above libraries (they were previously installed from debian-multimedia.org)
Thank you once again! Your help is already appreciated!

OP is the original poster..

My meaning was the original poster, posted asking a question about his issue.. and you guys have gone off track and are working on someone elses problem while the OP's issue is still unresolved as far as I can tell..

That would be called hijacking the thread..

I'm just saying it would be nice to help the OP resolve his issue before the thread is taken in another direction.

Yes, I see your point. I think you are totally right! But we didn't do it in purpose. (excessive enthusiasm you might say). We hopped that something good could come out of this, and maybe - I say, maybe - we have already helped OP with our previous posts... That (do we have helped him?) is something we don't know for sure... We are waiting for his response, and talk us about his progress, so we be able to re-direct.

Best regards
Vas

I know it wasn't intentional, I just wanted to point it out so you would notice and be aware for the future

Either the OP isn't coming back, or he's fixed his issue and hasn't bothered to tell us.. (hate when that happens)

We can only wait and see..
