Install gstreamer plugins for your totem player coz I'm running Intrepid and I can play all my videos and audio on my Ubuntu hehe !

My suggestion is using VLC ( greatest multimedia application Ive ever seen for ubuntu).....

System ( on top of the screen ) >> Administration >> Synaptic Package Manager

In Quick Search free input text field type VLC nd after getting the search result you need to mark the vlc option and apply it ( including all sub-packages ) ...... after finishing installation you have vlc in Application >> Sound & Video

Easy and simple ,,,, Enjoy
