Hello again. This week we step outside the Tutorials and Tips section once more, for a look at a tutorial that's stickied in another section. This time it's the gargantuan "Comprehensive Multimedia & Video Howto," by ubuntu-freak.


This is a thread of unnatural proportions, intending to tackle every audio and video alternative for every available Ubuntu release, and it does an amazing job. Everything from ripping DVDs to tinkering with your xorg.conf to the Adobe Flash Player are included, and in meticulous detail. If you haven't been through this thread at least once, you're missing a gold mine of information and instruction. Take the time to digest this one properly.
