comment ffmpeg & ffprobe & libfdk-aac on Ubuntu 14.10 server
That ppa does not include fdkaac. You could post your issues here & we'll see if a self build can be fixed - ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=786095 A self build is your best option due to server. I have ffmpeg shared for both 14.04 & 15.04 in ppa's with fdkaac, not that inclined to do 14.10. (- though if you wish to discuss in Ubuntu forums maybe I'll put up a server version in a tmp ppa.Ex. of 14.04 - launchpad.net/~mc3man/+archive/ubuntu/testing6 15.04 - launchpad.net/~mc3man/+archive/ubuntu/ffmpeg-test1 Over time both will get more sources built of off, ect.

comment gedit top menu invisible when started from terminal
Seems abnormal, here gedit's menu is always accessible whether started from the .desktop (Dash) or the binary (a terminal). You can always use this from a terminal - gtk-launch gedit or gtk-launch gedit /path/to/a/file. This uses the .desktop to launch

He's probably using list view where it's hard not to have a file selected when the view is full

comment Youtube doesn't work anymore in firefox (Ubuntu 14.04)
Sorry, but as far as YouTube & Firefox the current flash plugin works fine. Chrome/chromium need pepperflash, Firefox doesn't. The issue here was likely more related to the pipelight install

comment Vlc can't play wma files on ubuntu 14.04 even install restricted extras
vlc doesn't use gstreamer. Try running from terminal, ie. vlc -vv /path/to/problem.wma. Post the results at paste.ubuntu.com & add link in your question. Do you know if these wma are protected?
