Multimedia codecs in Linux Mint optional

Perhaps the text on Linux Mint needs a bit clarification. As of 2016 the Linux Mint ISO does not come with the multimedia codecs as default. You can however choose to install them by ticking a box during the installation or from the menu after the installation.
