Bug description:
I am reading the Ubuntu Manual rev. 788 (as part of the "Show us ya bugs" initiative), and in Chapter 3, on p. 89, I believe I have discovered some information errors regarding codecs.

1) libdvdcss2 is not available from multiverse.  It must be downloaded via the script mentioned immediately after.  It should be removed from the list of things to be installed via SW Center.

2) The gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse and gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly-multiverse packages (from multiverse) are nowhere mentioned in this section, yet provide plugins for such things as e.g. h.264.
The gstreamer0.10-fluendo-plugins-mp3-partner package (from the Canonical partner repo) could also be mentioned, though instructions for enabling the repo (clicking the "enable repo" button from the repo list in SW Center) would have to then be provided.
