Despite I have installed the Ubuntu restricted extras package, the Videos application raised error whenever I try to play a video. For example :

For avi:

Videos requires to install plugins to play media files of the following type: MPEG-4 Video decoder 

For mp4 :

Videos requires to install plugins to play media files of the following type: H.264 decoder 

Unlikely Videos, on VLC they works.

How to avoid this errors ?
