 Playing Audio and Video Files with FreeBSD

On Lamp tellls us how to play audio and video files with FreeBSD.

"One of the first things you'll notice if you're new to surfing the web from a Unix system is the lack of "automagic" support for the various audio and video formats splattered throughout the pages of Cyberspace. Do keep in mind that Unix is designed for the roll-your-own crowd who like to do their own customizations. Over time, I've configured my browser to display just about anything I come across on the Net. I've even learned a few things about multimedia and MIME types along the way."
