Hi all

Trying to install GStreamer codecs, as advised when I land on a multimedia webpage (Youtube).

Attached screenshots show what I see, but just go round in circles. Can't seem to add them. I've numbered them so you can see the order they were presented to me.

Any ideas, or can someone provide another method for updating all the codecs.

Thanks

Follow these threads, they will get you all the codecs you need and a bunch of other cool stuff if you want it:

If you need a total multimedia overhaul follow this guide:

If you just want the plugins and w32codecs and libdvdcss2 to play restricted formats follow this guide:
