deb-multimedia deposits collect non-integrated packages into Debian conventional deposits and/or newer versions of packages.
The addition of these deposits in the list of repositories available on HandyLinux offers you access to new or newer and multimedia codecs ; and some audio/video encoding softwares which are not present in the official repositories.
For example, we will install handbrake, a simplified video encoding software. List of the available programs: http://deb-multimedia.org/dists/stable/main/Contents-i386.gz
Deb-multimedia deposits are not maintained by Debian. they can introduce instability in your system
That said, I use these deposits for years without any worries (@ arpinux)
As usual, two methods: graphic with Synaptic package manager (25 clicks and 8 steps), or with Terminal (4 or 5 lines of commands) …
To add the deb-multimedia repositories graphically, it passes through the main Debian package management on HandyLinux: Synaptic. It is available in the (HandyMenu > Adventurers > List of Applications > System > Synaptic Package Manager) “System” tab of the List of Applications. A window will appear asking for a password, enter your connection password to go further.
That's all folks :)
Do not be afraid of the black box, the terminal is your friend. :) So direction HandyMenu > Adventurers > Open a terminal and type the following commands one by one, confirming the [Enter] key to end each command.
echo "deb http://www.deb-multimedia.org wheezy main non-free" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/multimedia.list
apt-get update && apt-get install deb-multimedia-keyring
apt-get update && apt-get upgrade apt-get install handbrake-gtk
Faster than fast isn't it ? :)
