Install Multimedia codecs in Linux Ubuntu

By default, Ubuntu doesn’t have full multimedia support. Because of patents and copyrights that apply in some countries.

Instruction is simple:
1. Open a terminal ( Ctrl + Alt + T )
2. Paste the following code:

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras

3. Enter password

or press the button below



Alternatively you can use VLC Media Player which can play most of the audio/video formats:

sudo apt-get install vlc

or via Software Center
