Medibuntu is the best way to get some video and audio playback
capability that isn't included in Ubuntu 8.10 for patent reasons.
If you live in a regioon which doesn't support these patents, you
can go ahead and get them. Popular packages include:
Firmware for the ALSA sound system
MPlayer / MEncoder
Non-free codecs and Skype"
