Here we will collect information witch application you can use to play and edit music, videos, use webcam, burn cd and dvd.

Codec Installation[edit]

If you like to play music or videos you have to use codecs. A codec is a utility which encodes or decodes a digital data stream.

On GhostBSD you have to install the following packages (if not already installed):

  • xvid - codec for Xvid (MPEG4)-coded files
  • gstreamer1 - framework
  • gstreamer1-libav
  • gstreamer1-plugins
  • gstreamer1-plugins-a52dec - DVD audio plugin
  • gstreamer1-plugins-bad
  • gstreamer1-plugins-cdparanoia - audio ripping plugin
  • gstreamer1-plugins-core
  • gstreamer1-plugins-dts - datagram TLS plugin
  • gstreamer1-plugins-dvdread
  • gstreamer1-plugins-faac - MPEG 2 and MPEG 4 AAC -encoder
  • gstreamer1-plugins-flac - Free Lossless Audio Codec
  • gstreamer1-plugins-gl - graphic plugin
  • gstreamer1-plugins-good - Codecs under LGPL licence
  • gstreamer1-plugins-jpeg - jpeg ancoder
  • gstreamer1-plugins-lame - free mp3 encoder
  • gstreamer1-plugins-mpg123
  • gstreamer1-plugins-neon
  • gstreamer1-plugins-ogg
  • gstreamer1-plugins-theora
  • gstreamer1-plugins-ugly
  • gstreamer1-plugins-wavpack

There are a lot more. You only have to open Software Station

DVD Playing[edit]

  • libdvdcss - dvd decryption


QuickTime is an extensible multimedia framework developed by Apple Inc., capable of handling various formats of digital video, picture, sound, panoramic images, and interactivity.

  • libquicktime


Vorbis is a free and open-source software project headed by the Xiph.Org Foundation. The project produces an audio coding format and software reference encoder/decoder (codec) for lossy audio compression

  • gstreamer-plugin-vorbis
  • libvorbis


Opus is a lossy audio coding format developed by the Xiph.Org Foundation and standardized by the Internet Engineering Task Force, designed to efficiently code speech and general audio in a single format, while remaining low-latency enough for real-time interactive communication and low-complexity enough for low-end embedded processors. Opus replaces both Vorbis and Speex for new applications, and several blind listening tests have ranked it higher-quality than any other standard audio format at any given bitrate until transparency is reached, including MP3, AAC, and HE-AAC.
