    I'm not sure why you responded, though, as it wasn't directed at you. I just don't want highly negative posts in here that aren't even support questions.

    Re: Comprehensive Multimedia & Video Howto

    I have a new Acer Laptop and the DVD drive would not play a video in Totem, VLC or XINE. I went through these instructions and almost gave up. When I hit the very bottom section where I was instructed to check the DVD region, bingo. It was not set for North America. Following the instructions did the job. I would never have thought of this one or figured it out.

    A BIG THANK YOU FOR THIS GREAT ASSISTANCE.

    A legal way to mass distribute ALL the media codecs, players, etc.

    It's The One Button installer for any version of Ubuntu. Wanna try it?

    Tell me your feedback, OK?

    I used the Flash troubleshooting section and I had to replace "adobe-flashplugin" with "flashplugin-installer". I hope this helps someone, and this can be updated. Thanks...

    We all know, by now, that some of us have a fatal allergy to command line.

    Yes, it may be irrational. But, the consequences are real.

    For those who fear the command line, we have created.....

    The new, "The One Button" tool, is a super simple program.

    It places an icon of a big red button on your desktop.

    Talk about an easy GUI method....

    Click it, and it clearly tells you what it's about to install. You must click OK that you Agree before it does anything.

    When complete, it asks you if you want it to delete itself.

    What it installs is: realplayer, flash, and all the media codecs in medibuntu repository.

    It works for every version of Ubuntu (every named version for which medibuntu has repos. )

    The source code is there too. Just extract it from the deb file, if you like.

    This is the alpha "release candidate".... The final version will only have the legal "I Agree" language slightly improved.

    Let me know what you think. Tell me your feedback, OK?

    Exclamation Re: Comprehensive Multimedia & Video Howto

    These instructions are great; thanks very much. There is one character that needs changing because of an update. "libk3b2-extracodecs" no longer exists; changing the "2" to "6" makes the command run perfectly. As far as I can tell, that particular reference exists only in the Kubuntu (32 & 64) instructions.

    Re: Comprehensive Multimedia & Video Howto

    Since Ubuntu cannot legally play MP3, nor a host of other non-free formats / codecs,..... in the USA,.... what I WOULD love to see the Ubuntu Store sell is: a COMPLETE multimedia license, along with all the proprietary codecs, for use LEGALLY within the USA. But it needs to cost $0.99 ........or $3.99 at the very most.

    This would help the widespread adoption of Ubuntu on the desktop in this country more than any other single decision / partnership Canonical could make.

    The number one complaint from tech reporters and reviewers, time after time, is always the same: media, flash, Java, DVD, MP3, etc.... "don't work"..... out of the box.

    The purchase of the $0.99 multimedia license, and installation of all such codecs, is so important, it SHOULD be included in the actual INSTALLATION process.

    Imagine 100 times more Ubuntu users from this one simple change.

    And no more "gray areas", legally, for users in Intellectual Property "Police States", like USA.

    2 simple things to do
    first
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
    then look in the software center for vlc media player.
    now you should be able to play just about any format of media.
