To install mp3 encoding library on lubuntu, we can use the gstreamer plugin ugly package, on lubuntu 15.10 wily werewolf i found that there are two versions of gstreamer ugly package.

The first one is the 0.1 version and the 1.0 version (gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly and gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly), so which one should you install?

To answer that question, it depends on the converter software that you are usingm which version does the software requires? but you can install both version to make sure all works.
