LXer: Now playing: DVD movies, Windows audio files on Ubuntu Linux

Published at LXer:

Life just got easier for users of the downloadable or boxed retail versions of the Ubuntu Linux 8.04 operating system who want easy and cheap ways of adding DVD playback and improved audio capabilities to their machines. Inexpensive add-on applications that will provide audio codecs and a DVD player to expand the multimedia capabilities of the four-year-old Linux operating system are now available for purchase in the Ubuntu online store.

Even easier with Mandriva. “Codeina” auto-loads codecs as you need them, and asks to you if you prefer the proprietary codec or the alternative free codec (when there is choice).
