Really?

  http://www.debian-multimedia.org/dists/unstable/main/binary-amd64/package/vlc.php

     Details for vlc (1:2.0.0-0.1)

  http://packages.debian.org/wheezy/vlc

     Package: vlc (2.0.0-6) 

so, yes there's the spurious epoch there, but otherwise that looks like
the same latest version.

Even if you were talking about stable -- well d-m.o doesn't have a
version of vlc in its stable repository, but perhaps you're on about
stable-backports:

  http://www.debian-multimedia.org/dists/squeeze-backports/main/binary-amd64/package/vlc.php

     Details for vlc (1.1.3-1squeeze6.1)

which I must say I was surprised to see is not at the latest version,
and is not even more up to date than the stable debian version.

  http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/vlc

     Package: vlc (1.1.3-1squeeze6)

I presume that's why you didn't risk backing up your point with any
facts or references.

Cheers, Phil.
