First installing an Ubuntu operating system and work on it, we quickly see that there are basic functions that should work but some are not work, for example, play a file in MP3 format or video in AVI format.
This is due to lack of codecs with which Ubuntu starts by default , so if we make all these third – party options, we must make the installation of so- called extra restricted and thus eligible for these libraries that allow us to play all the multimedia content of our team easily.
This process is very basic and simple, since it is sufficient to access the Ubuntu extras restricted to download and install the appropriate package , we can also do it for different versions of Ubuntu, all from the menu located in the upper left.
As you can see, although boot Ubuntu for the first time may think that there will be basic tasks you can not do, the developers thought that everything have arranged packages and libraries that allow us to make virtually any job without any problem , also Ubuntu has one of the most active communities that exist and their thousands of participants strive every day to improve, so these codecs and extras offer new features and improvements continuously.
Finally we say that the package is 100% free and unrestricted use , so this package is one of the first we should install as soon as we launch our operating system and begin to take advantage of the advantages of codecs multimedia from the first minute of use.
What do you think Ubuntu? Do you think it is the best system for multimedia playback or there are others who outgrow?
