    INSTRUCTIONS FOR PLAYING MIDI FILES ON VLC MEDIA PLAYER
    (as taken from Wikipedia.)

    To playback those .midi files [on VLC], you need a SoundFont file: .sf2 (for FluidSynth).
    You can download [it]from...:
    http://www.schristiancollins.com/generaluser.php

    After downloading, place the .sf2 file in a folder where you can both keep and find it (e.g., the VLC program folder.)

    Configure SoundFont in VLC

    You need to open VLC's preferences. The preferences window has two display modes called Simple and ALL. Choose the display mode called ALL, then go to Codecs, Audio codecs, FluidSynth.
    You select the .sf2 file with the preferences select button. Due to a bug in the software it may ask if you want to replace the file you selected. Choose "Yes" to continue (your file remains intact).
    If the FluidSynth codec is not shown in the preferences, you have to install it (e.g. on Ubuntu 10.10 it is included in the vlc-plugin-fluidsynth package, while the fluid-soundfont-gs and fluid-soundfont-gm packages install some sound fonts in /usr/share/sounds/sf2).
