If you don't see it there, I would guess you need to create a new connection with pppconfig or gnome ppp, but I've never had to do that before, so I don't know exactly how it would work.
I've tried using pppconfig but there was nothing that I could use to connect. I downloaded gnome ppp in windows but when I put it in ubuntu I couldn't get in installed. When I tried to look at ubuntu's repository I had to be connected to install anything. I even tried tethering my laptop to my desktop and share the connection but it was to slow. I think I'm just fucked.
The only con I've had so far is that HD media isn't playing very well. It looks like it may be a driver issue because it's maxing out my processor quite a bit more than windows does so maybe the video card drivers aren't up to 1080p snuff. It's perfect for the laptop though! Consider us converts!
VLC 9 has the best compatibility with subtitles.
Mplayer usually gives best performance, when you can get it to work.

To start playing a file, open up a terminal and type mplayer [videofile]. To pause playback at any moment, just hit the spacebar, to unpause hit the spacebar again. If you, for any reason, wish to quit playing the video, just hit the Esc key.
So putting a file with a program and it not working is in some way my fault? That's pretty typical of Nine's logic.
you may want to learn the command line version.
If you run Windows, use CCCP.
I'm just using boxee for almost everything these days.
I love CCCP.
I haven't tried it recently, but when I tried it on Linux initially it rant horribly. Has it advanced to the point where it just uses mplayer for video playback?
It makes even WMP look like an improvement over VLC.
