MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 Codec installieren

Saturday, October 3rd, 2009

Whenever I set up a new system I struggled to remember how to acivate additional audio and video codecs like H.264 as it is commenly used e.g. in flash videos (*.flv).

Last time I did it this way:

sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse

In addition to these gstreamer packages I used to install restricted-extras from the medibuntu sources

sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/hardy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install medibuntu-keyring && sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install vlc libdvdc* ubuntu-restricted-extras w32codecs ffmpeg xine-ui

Make sure to substitude hardy by the your distributions code name e.g. jaunty.
