    This will allow you to play divx and other types of media files as well, however you will need to install the addition codecs. However, Linux will now do this for you because it has the gstreamer databases available to it.

    Just to clarify… You need to install the free component first. So swap steps one and two here. I attempted to use this to install, and got an error that I was missing dependencies. These dependencies are installed via step 2, therefore must be installed first.
