First you need to install the Ubuntu restricted extras, open a Termainal window (press Alt+F2 and type: gnome-terminal) and copy+paste the following line:

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras

When installed you need to add the medibuntu to your repository. To do this copy+paste the following lines in your Terminal window:

sudo wget --output-document=/etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/$(lsb_release -cs).list && sudo apt-get --quiet update && sudo apt-get --yes --quiet --allow-unauthenticated install medibuntu-keyring && sudo apt-get --quiet update

Medibuntu’s repository is deactivated by upgrading to a newer Ubuntu release, so you should run this command again after the release upgrade.
You may also wish to add the following packages. The first will cause many apps from the Medibuntu repository to appear in Ubuntu Software Center (Ubuntu 9.10+) or Add/Remove Applications (versions prior to 9.10). The second will allow users to generate crash reports against Medibuntu packages and submit them to the Medibuntu bugtracker.

sudo apt-get install app-install-data-medibuntu apport-hooks-medibuntu

    my terminal cannot found vlc…
    my terminal said
    Package mozilla-plugin-vlc is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source

      Another way to install VLC and the mozilla plugin is to use the Ubuntu Software Center. Press Alt+F2 and type: software-center and search for vlc. Click on the more info button in the search result, scroll down and mark the mozilla plugin. When done click on the Install button and vlc and the mozilla plugin will be installed.
