    Media player / aptitude problems

    Hey, I recently switched back to ubuntu after a year of gaming on w7, however I think that this time I'm going to stick to ubuntu, if she doesnt screw me like she has the previous times...

    Anyways, I was just wondering what media players you guys favor, and why? (maybe there doesn't have to be a reason xD), and I tried to install beep media player with:

    sudo aptitude install beep-media-player

    and the return is: sudo: aptitude: command not found

    does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
    any feedback would be great
    It feels good to be back in the ubuntu community, windows just doesn't have the same community

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install aptitude
    #I like vlc plays anything I throw at it.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install vlc
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libdvdcss2
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
    #ubuntu-restricted-extras gives you a lot of codec's to play audio and video, dvd is libdvdcss2
    ###aptitude great for safe-upgrade
    Code:
    sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude safe-upgrade
    ##vlc looks like a little small player but huge inside:
