There are many Linux distros that have support for MP3 (and more) out of the box. The thing they all have in common is that you have to pay for them.

You don't have to pay for Debian. And with a light flick of an apt-get it will support your favourite dvds out of the box (or, at least, out of their repositories) as well.
