Playing Restricted formats in ubuntu such as MP3,DAT,MPEG etc

Initially when I installed ubuntu I was unable to play my favourite music because these formats such as mp3,mpeg are restricted if you want to play them you have to install some packages.

Sol 1 is to open the terminal and install vlc as follows as vlc supports all formats I have heared:

tarun@chawla:~$ sudo apt-get update
(skip this if you have already updated)

tarun@chawla:~$sudo apt-get install vlc

After terminal finishes vlc is intsalled,run those music files with vlc.

or installed ubuntu-restricted-extras package which packages most of the plugins and software required to run day to day licensed things.
To install it do as follows:
tarun@chawla:~$ sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
(after updating as above,if you have already updated skip updating).
Enjoy the day
