Restricted Formats - Install Packages

Sunday, October 23, 2005

In Ubuntu, many formats are not available as there are licensing or patents issues with such formats. Such examples are MP3s, which require about 75cents for every player that plays MP3 files. Other formats that are not available CODECs for DVD playback, Java, Realplayer, Flash, etc.
You can install them by following the steps in the the wiki page of Ubuntu.
