GStreamer for Ubuntu,Debian Mp3

Gnu/Linux Ubuntu does not riproduce MP3 files, this means you’ve got to install it yourself, if not you would not be able to play you’re mp3 files. Ubuntu simply wants to avoid legal problems in countries where mp3 licence is needed. In the “Synaptic Package Manager” in System/Administration move over to “Settings” then “Repositories”. On the “Ubuntu Software” flap choose all the servers you want to use to download packages. Make sure you select “universe” e/o “multiverse”. Then Close.
