I installed LUBUNTU 12.04 in my friends 1gb ram laptop for his basic requirements ..
Bt Found LUBUNTU Plays .avi,mp4 and many video formats without any extra codecs ???
When googled found LUBUNTU has an Option to install 3rd party codecs During Installation ..
Well i dont remeber i checked that one , but the machine was not connected to internet while installing ..
So was the codec available in CD itself ??
Does UBUNTU also started providing this type of codecs during installation ??
I use to try every flavor of Ubuntu for a test and never found this ...
always installed ubuntu-restricted-codecs after installation ....
So did other UBUNTU derivatives Ships with Codecs available On CD ???
