Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Have you downloaded and installed the mpeg3 and mpeg4 decoders in the first place? I am giving an advise unasked for: if you want good quality from M Player, download Alsamix and Alsamix GUI from the software manager and in their window just UP the Volume ( i am just passing on a fantastic piece of advise from a "Sound" Pro)! Best wishes! IF THE PREVIOUS POST SOLVES YOUR PROB.,JUST FORGET THIS POST!(Very sorry for the bold type)
PS: My apologies to divyashree! She was faster off the track, while i was composing my post!
