You need to make sure you have the correct multimedia codecs installed.

See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats, https://help.ubuntu.com/7.10/musicvideophotos/C/codecs.html, https://help.ubuntu.com/7.10/musicvideophotos/C/video.html#video-badformats and http://www.medibuntu.org/ for more information.

Although some documents are created for 7.10 the steps provided will be similar when using Hardy.

Can you help with this problem?
