install latest vlc on ubuntu 8.04

So, you have got ubuntu and you are still playing movies on 0.8.6 something version. No matter how many times you do an "apt-get update", vlc does not upgrade. The way to do this is:

a) sudo vim /etc/apt/sources.list

b) Add line "deb hardy main" and save the file

c) sudo apt-get update

d) sudo apt-get install vlc

Now when you type in vlc, you will see the latest vlc player popping up...

Great, works a treat! Now running 0.9.8a (with Qt interface!) on Ubuntu 8.04 - just what I wanted. Thanks.
