You will have to download CODECS.

To install the proprietary CODECs type the following in a terrminal window.

32 bit OS

sudo apt-get -y install gstreamer0.10-pitfdll gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly-multiverse

64 bit OS

sudo apt-get -y install gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly-multiverse

Once you have installed these CODECs you will be able to play nearly any audio/video format.

I would recommend you to install Ubuntu restricted extras from the Software center. you can also install Ubuntu restricted extras through the terminal by typing

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
