I've been an Ubuntu user since Dapper and Ubuntu has been my only or main OS since Lucid. My PC is not powerful enough to run Unity so I use Gnome Classic and since Precise I've started fiddling with LXDE too. My favourite release thus far is Maverick though Precise built up from a minimum install with LXDE is a close second.

A very big thank you to all who contribute to Ubuntu.

Before Ubuntu (and during) I often fiddle with Fedora and I've sampled a few other distros. My first Gnu/Linux use was in the late 90s with Red Hat and then Suse.

comment How to convert mpeg to mp4?
Yes via FileExplorer over wifi and also transfered with iTunes. The video stutters and there is no sound. I used this profile: "Video - H.264 + MP3 (MP4)". I can provide a short clip if wanted ~10MB.

comment How to convert mpeg to mp4?
I spent some hours reading various solutions in myriad places so it is difficult to say exactly what I did to get it working but typing the following in to the terminal works (where one.mpg in my home folder is the file to be converted) and it works on iDevices too:

Doesn't this cause problems in removing libavcodec54?

While this did work, the resulting mp4 file didn't play correctly on an iPad.

Thanks, I was just about to try Handbrake which I have used before but find a bit complicated when I tried the VLC method described below.
