You need to install some additional codecs, included in some optional packages. To do this, do one of the following:

Synaptic
  • Go to Applications → Add/Remove...
  • Set Show: to All available applications
  • Search for ubuntu-restricted-extras and install it. Note that there is also xubuntu-restricted-extras (for Xubuntu) and kubuntu-restricted-extras (for Kubuntu.)
Or open the Terminal, and execute the following command:
Code:
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
Information taken from: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats/
