Hi,
I have read a bunch of threads on getting media to play, mp3, dvd's, backup of movie dvd's, etc. I read about the medibuntu package, just installing items separately, etc.

What is the best way to add in all the items to play restricted formats, backup my movie dvd's, etc?

dunno about the best way, but heres how i do it

follow this for what ever version your using

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Medibuntu

then to setup all the codecs u need do this

sudo apt-get install libdvdcss2

also

sudo apt-get install w32codecs (if u are using 32 bit cpu)

or

sudo apt-get install w64codecs (if using 64 bit cpu)

also

sudo apt-get install non-free-codecs

also

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras (if using ubuntu)

also
sudo apt-get install k9copy

(lets u rip dvds)

once this is done, restart pc

make sure you can play a dvd and if it can play fine, then u can rip till your hearts content using k9copy
