Install multimedia codecs in Ubuntu

Due to copyright problems ubuntu doesn’t have MP3 plug-in in built.We need to install restricted drivers manually.Also some other basic things like Java,Flash Player and other plug-ins are needed to be installed.Now,it is surely a cumbersome process to install each of them manually.So,after ubuntu provides a package for such restricted drivers.You just need to download them and you are done!

Type: sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras

First it will download 87 MB of packages and will install them.installation takes while due to no. of libraries installed.Also it will install windows fonts.
