I was recently advised as follows:-

you install totem-xine, libxine-extracodecs, all the gstreamer-0.10
codecs (good bad and ugly) and w32codecs you shouldnt have trouble
playing mpegs. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats has
lots of information on how to enable codecs for various multimedia
formats, both audio and video.

Hope this is of use.
