So long Medibuntu

Medibuntu (Multimedia, Entertainment & Distractions In Ubuntu) was an awesome repository for Linux.  It provided packages that could not be included into the Ubuntu distribution for legal reasons (copyright, license, patent, etc).

A breakdown of what was available via Medibuntu:

As per the Ubuntu site: Medibuntu has now been shut down, the packages were either obsolete, unnecessary or moved to the official Ubuntu archive.

What do you do now?

Well it’s simple really, just add the following content to /etc/apt/sources.list. This comes from the same people tha tmake VLC player, read more here.

deb http://download.videolan.org/pub/debian/stable/ /
deb-src http://download.videolan.org/pub/debian/stable/ /

Get the package and key

wget -O - http://download.videolan.org/pub/debian/videolan-apt.asc|sudo apt-key add -

Now run and update to install the package

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

What do you use for playing media in Linux?
