I would like to install the restricted extras package, which I didn't select during the install. How can I do that?

is a meta-package that installs:

  • Support for MP3 and unencrypted DVD playback

  • Microsoft TrueType core fonts

  • Flash plugin

  • codecs for common audio and video files

More From » ubuntu-restricted-extras


First, be warned that it might not be legal in some countries, because of software patents.

With that being said, here is how to install it, click here:

ubuntu-restricted-extras Install ubuntu-restricted-extras

Or you can open up a terminal and run the following command:

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras

Select yes, and you'll have ubuntu-restricted-extras installed and working.
