First ensure your package lists are up to date:
sudo apt-get update

Then install VLC:
sudo apt-get install vlc

You can install it via Ubuntu Software Center, it's more powerfull and prevent some damage

kevinedwards are you saying the the software center is more powerfull than apt-get? If so, how so? I'm not assuming you're wrong, it's just that if you're right I would like to understand.

Ubuntu Software Center is provide many software, but if you can not find any software in Software Center like ClipGrab, you can using install directly from terminal.

IMHO, searching and install any software by using Ubuntu Software Center is more save than using terminal.
