Title:
  [SRU] Update to bug-fix release 2.2.8 in Xenial

Status in vlc package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in vlc source package in Xenial:
  Confirmed

Bug description:
  [Impact]

  VLC has received many bug fixes on the stable 2.2.x branch since 2.2.2
  was released. I think 16.04 LTS should get these fixes.

  [Test Case]

  Install vlc from xenial-proposed and test it for at least one week.
  Play different video formats to catch any regressions, and use it as
  you normally would.

  [Regression Potential]

  The 2.2.x branch receives only bug fixes, which are cherry-picked from
  the master branch where the main development takes place. So, I think
  the regression potential is low.

  [Other Info]

  VLC 2.2 maintenance branch.
