The atareao-team ppa ( Install on your own risk ) got some neat indicators for Ubuntu:
# add-apt-repository ppa:atareao/atareao # apt-get update # apt-get install calendar-indicator # apt-get install my-weather-indicator
The FFmpeg plugin for GStreamer 0.10 is not available in the official Ubuntu 14.04 repositories (because FFMpeg is not available either – libav is used instead) and because of this, Firefox doesn’t support the H.264 codec.

# add-apt-repository ppa:mc3man/trusty-media # apt-get update # apt-get install gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg
You can check you H.264 support at http://www.youtube.com.html5
