Question 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......
