How do I install ubuntu-restricted extras

I can't get video files to play in either Chromium or Firefox, when I try and load them from the web site this is what I get "The video could not be loaded, either because the server or network failed or because the format is not supported: http://media.woodsmith.com/etip/2012/02/woodsmithtipsintro_02162012.mp4"
