Depends on your individual setup. I run 'prefer highest' myself unless I run into a problem. I have nothing pinned so I usually don't.

Trying to upgrade from 1.1.12, I got:
Code:
vlc:
  Depends: vlc-nox (=1.1.13-0mcr110+1) but 1.1.12-1mcr110+1 is to be installed
  Depends: libva-x11-1 (>1.0.14~) but 1.0.7-0.0 is to be installed
  Depends: libva1 (>1.0.14~) but 1.0.7-0.0 is to be installed

I tried a couple of different "distribution settings": Mepis; highest; stable; etc.

I might be my system, because ever since installing M11 I've had various issue upgrading vlc, ffmpeg, codecs, etc. That I ever quite fully understood.

Cheers

I've had issues with vlc also. Currently it is not installed due to incompatibilities that were generated with upgrades done with the Community Repositories enabled. I've tried debian-backports and debian-multimedia but neither will enable an installation of vlc.

Bump: New version 2.0 now in the main testing repo. It will need the CR version of ffmpeg, either the "main" or "restricted" ffmpeg will work, but the restricted version needs to get libfaac from the debian-multimedia repo. The update includes a lot of new codec support, as well as multicore decoding for h.264, webM, and mpeg4 xvid files. The user interface has undergone some sprucing up, too:

It has a new .mkv file demuxer, but I had to patch it to get it to play a lot of the ones I have.

The browser plugin has been removed from VLC, but I'm still looking for the source code in Debian. Some of the posts I find mention that the plugin is badly broken...

I was able to upgrade to the VLC 2.0 version on a 32-bit MEPIS 11 installation and it works OK. An upgrade to VLC 2.0 on a 64-bit MEPIS 11 installation will not open. The VLC icon bounces and then disappears. I went back to the previous version.

Odd-maybe it's a video driver issue. One troubleshooting method is to execute "vlc" from a terminal (such as Konsole) and see what error messages turn up.

I upgraded to VLC 2.0 on my 64-bit MEPIS 11 installation and ran it in a terminal . When executing VLC the next lines read:

VLC media player 2.0.0 Twoflower (revision 2.0.0-0-g421a4fc)
Segmentation fault

I have version 6:0.6.1-6mcr110+2 of ffmpeg installed.

OK....usually that points to some kind of QT4 problem (vlc's GUI uses QT4). I'd try upgrading to the QT4 4.7.3 that's in the community repo, if you haven't already, and see if that fixes the problem.
