Installing the package called "ubuntu-restricted-extras", if it's not already installed, is usually sufficient. You can do that in Applications > Ubuntu Software Center. You might also find it useful to enable the Medibuntu repository. If video doesn't play already, and doesn't play after you install "ubuntu-restricted-extras", then see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats and https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Medibuntu. Please feel free to post again if you have any further questions about, or need more assistance with, this issue.

Yep. I would suggest installing the 'ubuntu-restricted-extras' package.

Can you help with this problem?
