The Windows Media Player itself can be made to work but is not a good fit for Ubuntu. As I don't like rhythmbox neither, so I just use VLC player to play all of my media.

Connecting inside your LAN: Just type in the local IP, the one output from "ifconfig" or "ip address". To have people outside your LAN connect: Forward a port to your game server's local IP address.

When you install a game it gives you a option to install it elsewhere: As you can see above, I have created a folder extra in the root partition under which I ...

It is possible but very hard to accomplish, firstly you are able to setup multiple monitors as a single large monitor using Xinerama, now for the hard part, you need a video capture card that is compatible with Linux, Blackmagic cards are the most recognised brand which has support for Linux, however you need to compile the DeckLink SDK and develop a setup ...

I wouldn't use that dialogue as an indication of anything. It's just a pretty screen with high-level info. I'd suggest using vendor-issued tools like nvidia-settings (GUI) or nvidia-smi (CLI) to work out what's there. Even neutral things like lspci will tell you what's plugged in.
