Since I made the upgrade to 12.04 I can't play WMA files. I added Medibuntu, install w64codecs, non-free-codecs but they don't work. I have also installed ubuntu-restricted-extras.

Just so I'm clear, you ran "sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras"? –  Switchkick Apr 29 '12 at 9:12
Yes I have also installed –  zourite Apr 29 '12 at 9:16

I found the solution: remove the folder .gstreamer in the home directory.

Give a try using VLC player which worked in mine without the need of downloading codecs separately, I found the following link which was similar to your problem, Hope it helps
