I have a dual boot system with Windows 7 and Ubuntu installed. I want to install the multimedia codecs but I do not have an Internet connection in Ubuntu. I do have a connection in Windows, instead.
Is there a way to do so?

You can download packages manually and install them in Ubuntu.
In Ubuntu, you can use mount(8) to mount the Windows partition.
dpkg -i /path/to/your/deb/debname.deb
to install these packages.
Notice that you may have to prepare everything necessary and install them in order because dpkg cannot download dependencies.
