I found the dvd download.  Does it include codecs for mp3 and video
playback formats or do I need to download those files separately?  If
so  The file is huge a 4 gigs and will take me days to download.  I
found Ubuntu restricted extras offline installer 10.04 for Ubuntu 10.0
torrent but there are only 2 seeders and am getting no activity
whatsoever at the moment.

thanks for any advice.
