installing Gstreamer
 
I am new to this linux thing. I have no idea how to install any file especially the Gstreamer for ubuntu. I am a windows pro who has used it for years and i thought i would try something that didn't have a blue screen. LOL. So i guess my question is how do I install this plug-in for totem on my ubuntu?

This might help with your question (well it will answer it):

http://ubuntuguide.org/

however, it tells you how and not why in ubuntu terms. useful though. Make sure to edit your repositories......

I did what the guide said but still it didn't work.
Below is what i copied from the guide to the terminal. I tried playing back some mpegs and mp3's nothing it gave the message that i needed the plugin.
