Re: @FatGerman - The end of Mint is complete
Nah you've missed my point, although in retrospect I didn't make it very well.
Apparently there's now a menu item to "Install Multimedia Codecs". Yeah great. The people who need this won't actually understand what it means and won't therefore use it. It needs to be something like "Why won't my video play?". This is something the web worked out about a decade ago.
