So liblivemedia-dev has gone for the time being, I will experiment a little.

The winds have changed a little on these Forums, both this guide and my vlc guide have been very, very quiet which does not match with the large amount of work I have put into them. I am starting to wonder if perhaps such guides are in fact a relic of the days when the media needs of Ubuntu were not particularly well met and in the present day they only really cater for the needs of a small handful of enthusiasts. Hmmmm.....
