I am using Ubuntu fine with all the codecs such as "ubuntu-restricted-extras". Is this software for something special??

It's intended for people (and especially companies) in USA, where installing or distributing the restricted codecs isn't actually legal due to local patent/copyright laws.

If you install the restricted codecs and the codecs from Medibuntu, then Fluendo's codec packs won't bring you any benefits.

Thanks for your reply. I have been curious if it brings something new....
