Ubuntu – Where I can download video codecs


I'm new to Ubuntu and I'm having difficulty watching videos. How can I install the video codecs needed for most video formats?

Best Answer

Normally when you install Ubuntu in the installer it asks you to install 3rd party stuff which includes this codecs for video/audio.

Click here: ubuntu-restricted-extras Install ubuntu-restricted-extras

It will ask for some additional dependencies, just say yes. Then click on the apply button. This will install not only the codecs you need but many other things including fonts, flash support and more.
