Problem with opening Divx Movies in Ubuntu
 
Hello,

I have installed Ubuntu 9.10 on my laptop.
But I can not open Divx movies.
Also I can not play mp3s.

What should I do in order to play these formats?

With best regards,
Hassan

You need to get the multimedia codecs. See this page:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Medibuntu
These codecs are not included with Ubuntu since they are restricted by greedy patent holders who have armies of lawyers to defend their patents. They are easy to add to any linux distro that does not include them though.
Write back if you need more help.
