Hi Karl,

I'll do the googling and reading for you (from

sudo wget --output-document=/etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list$(lsb_release -cs).list &&
sudo apt-get --quiet update && sudo apt-get --yes --quiet
--allow-unauthenticated install medibuntu-keyring && sudo apt-get
--quiet update

which goes and gets the keys, sets up the repository etc. and then
does an update.

Let's see where we are (10.04 LTS)
hakan at ltsp:~$ cat /etc/lsb-release

Now, install the software as instructed in this thread:

sudo apt-get install w64codecs libdvdcss2
