Mr. Andy Woodhead i am really thankful to u for your kind reply. :)
Well , i actually haven't bought raspberry pi 3 yet. Because i want to use it to play all kind of media files.
I did lot of googling but in almost every article it is said that one have to buy some codecs (MPEG-2 license key,VC-1 license key,MPEG-2 license key,VC-1 license key) in order to play these type of media formats.
I want to know that is it possible to install restricted extras in Ubuntu Mate edition for Raspberry Pi 3 as we can easily install restricted extras in Ubuntu.
Please guide me in this regard other wise i will buy Intel compute stick with Ubuntu. :)
Thanks
