Re: WinFF: How to install (mp4) codec

If you are using Statler you'll want to make sure that you have the debian-multimedia repos enabled, this will allow you to install the various grstreamer packages with all of the codecs you'll ever need :-)

Here is what I have installed:

gstreamer0.10-alsa gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg gstreamer0.10-fluendo-mp3 gstreamer0.10-lame gstreamer0.10-nice gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad gstreamer0.10-plugins-base gstreamer0.10-plugins-good gstreamer0.10-plugins-really-bad gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly gstreamer0.10-x gstreamer0.10-x264

Enabling the proper repos are easy too, just go to !
