Feisty feature of the day #19 - Easy codec installation

This is a much-anticipated major feature for Feisty - automated codec installation. I've only used it once so far (I had most of the bad codecs installed before I upgraded to Feisty), but it worked like a charm.

If you try to play a video or audio file and don't have the appropriate codec installed, a window pops up and asks if you want to install it. As soon as the installation is complete, the file you were trying to watch can be played. It's as simple as that.

Ubuntu can automatically install multimedia codecs that you need to watch a video or listen to music

Windows and Mac OS don't have this sort of awesomeness, as far as I know. Ubuntu now means multimedia for human beings.
