Hi if that doesn't work,you should try this,
Open up a terminal (applications -> accessories -> terminal) and copy/paste this code:

sudo wget https://medibuntu.org -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list && wget -q https://medibuntu.org -O- | sudo apt-key add – && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -y ubuntu-restricted-extras non-free-codecs w32codecs totem-mozilla libdvdcss2

Thanks
I install ubuntu 9.10 and i was able to do it just whit the update, thank you
