You are using the proposed repo, what do you expect???? The packages in the proposed repo are not ready and are only to be used for testing.....

I suggest you disable the proposed repo, uninstall vlc then reinstall it

You could even run:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:videolan/master-daily; sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get -y install vlc

and you will get vlc 1.2 however this is the nightly git build, if you get issues with that then run:

sudo apt-get -y install ppa-purge; sudo ppa-purge ppa:videolan/master-daily; sudo apt-get clean

And you will go back to 1.11

Why did you enable the proposed repoitory??

Can you help with this problem?
