Restricted Formats Assistant (legal out-of-the-box MP3/DVD/etc)

Registered by Santiago Roza on 2006-03-17

This Assistant intents to solve the problem of having almost out-of-the-box support for common multimedia formats (MP3, DVD, DivX, etc), while staying legal everywhere.

It is one of the possible solutions described here ...

It follows a different approach from the "Easy Codecs Installation" spec; this Assistant tries to cover most common formats at once, instead of working on a per-case basis:
