Two days ago I tried to download skype and it says an error occurred it says

 end of central directory signature not found  Either this file is not
  a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive.  In the
  latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
  the last disk(s) of this archive.

zipinfo: 
 cannot find zipfile directory in one of /home/maria/Downloads/SkypeSetup-aoc-jd.exe

or

/home/maria/Downloads/SkypeSetup-aoc-jd.exe.zip, and cannot find /home/maria/Downloads/SkypeSetup-aoc-jd.exe.ZIP

pe... this happens whenever I try to download anything like games and also i can't watch videoss it's looking for plug ins but it doesn't find them i hate this

You can install skype here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Skype

For watching videos you can install any player. for example to install vlc media player you can type

sudo apt-get install vlc

.exe is the Windows programs extension. You should download the linux (Ubuntu) version of them.

Try to use the Ubuntu Software Center to install software.
