.3gp Video playing in Ubuntu 9.1 (Karmic Koala)

So the issue really is that the medibuntu repository no longer carries the mplayer capable of handling 3gp using AMR (from here). The guy who pointed it out then posted a wonderful but long guide here. This is conforting as I'd hate to have to boot to windows just to check the files recorded on my G1.

Following that I got a "Gnome Mplayer" which handles .3gp quite nicely. I'll have to see if I broke anything along the way!
