No pre-installed MP3 plugin for Ubuntu LucidFiled under: Interesting;
About one week ago I posted the FAQ on the Ubuntu One Music Store here on LinuxUndIch translated to German. One question remained, however, still open in spite of the FAQ: Ubuntu can not play “out of the box” no MP3 files, the codec required to be installed later only. . Ubuntu now goes to the MP3 codec when you installed the system to automatically installViewThe question can now be answered with “No”.The FAQ has now been supplemented by Ubuntu developer Matt Griffin with the following paragraph.

The codec will be installed automatically. Instead, similar to playing an MP3 file is loaded, the wizard through which you have the codec installed quickly.

The codec can be downloaded and installed by the user at no cost to the whole world. Canonical for the topic is probably still too hot. In Germany, some were on this year's CeBIT again performed at numerous importers Razi and equipment confiscated.
