What distro/version are you asking about?

In what program did you forget to click?

I've never used ElementaryOS, but I presume you need to enable the Ubuntu repositories. This may help:

It should be in the menu under something like Preferences > Software and Updates, and look something like this:

Note the 4th checkmarked item.

Elementary is/was based on Ubuntu, so that may be where it still is.

if you can't find it in menus, but can search/launch apps by name (e.g. Alt+F2), the app in question is either software-properties-qt or software-properties-gtk. Tab completion usually works in quick launcher window, so start typing software- there, then press Tab to complete.

Yes, you can select it after installation in the said app. Have you looked at the screenshot KGIII posted? It has that tab, Other Software.

Call me old-school (and maybe outdated since I haven't used any 'buntus in ages), but

Code:
Ctrl-Alt-F2
Log in
Code:
sudo apt update
Quote:
sudo apt install lubuntu-restricted-extras ffmpeg sox twolame handbrake asunder
should just about get you there, then look up the packages desired with

Code:
sudo apt-cache search {pkg name}
and install them
