After you've installed what you need except for Flash...

Add debian-multimedia to /etc/apt/sources.list:-
#Multimedia repository - only use if the package cannot be found in
standard repositories
#deb http://mirror.optus.net/debian-multimedia/ stable main non-free
#deb-src http://mirror.optus.net/debian-multimedia/ stable main

See this page to find your local mirror:-

Guessing that you're new - you'll probably go for a default install
which will give you sudo and a Gnome desktop. That also means you'll
have gnash installed which will handle flash well in many cases.

To modify /etc/apt/sources.list open a terminal run:-
1. sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
copy and paste the appropriate lines from the web page into the file
make sure you uncomment the first "deb" line (remove the # from the
start of the line)
save it (F2), yes, Enter
install the signing key for the repository:-
2. sudo apt-get install debian-multimedia-keyring
Update the apt database:-
3. sudo apt-get update
install flash:-
4. sudo flashplayer-mozilla
install dvd decrypt while you're there:-
5. sudo apt-get install libdvdcss2

When you're done comment out the first deb line again:-
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
then update the apt database again:-
sudo apt-get update
Some of the packages in Multimedia have the same names as ones on in the
main repositories - and mixing them can break things. It's best to only
enable Multimedia for specific packages.
