Hi,

In the process of setting up mythbuntu as a backend on my server I tried to install the proprietary codecs, specifically w32codecs within the mythbuntu setup.

Unfortunately it took me a while to clue to the face that the reason these would not work is that I run AMD64. The easy fix was to install the w64codecs manually, but would be nice if mythbuntu either called up the w64 version directly or gave an error message.

Yeah, we recently addressed this, but it won't show up until after the RC ( right before the final )
