Ubuntu – How to install the most common plugins


How can I install the most used plugins like flash player and mp3 in Ubuntu?

Best Answer

The easiest way is to install the package ubuntu-restricted-extras by clicking the button below:

Install via the software center

This will install a bunch of useful stuff, because it is a meta-package, like Flash, MP3 capability, mscorefonts etc.

Connect to the internet. Open the software center and search for ubuntu-restricted-extras and install it.

You will have to accept some licences for non-free stuff.
