You might be missing the appropriate audio codec. What audio format is used in that file?

Johannes Pilkahn (j-pilkahn) said : #4

Do you have the "ubuntu-restricted-extras" package installed? If not do so, by opening a terminal and typing "sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras"

If that doesn't fix the problem or is already done, can you please post the output of "cat /proc/asound/cards"? Thank you.

Did you enable restricted driver for your soundcard if any?

Can you help with this problem?
