Totem and MPG files

Asked by jacrespo

I all.

When I go to play any mpg file, I receive all time the same message " you do not have a decoder installed to handle this file. You might need to install the necessary plugins."

What is a procedure for obtained and install the plugins? What plugins are necesary?.

These formats like MPG, AVI, MP3, MPEG, MOV are not free formats and they are not supported by ubuntu linux, because ubuntu is a free OS so just follow this wiki in order to play these files

you can use xmms instead of totem. Its a good program , with a gui similar to the winamp one. It has got the support for mp3 files.

Can you help with this problem?
