Which player do you use? If it's Totem (default under Gnome), you also
need to install the gstreamer plugins: gstreamer0.10-plugins-base,
The "bad" and "ugly" packages refer to plugins which use non-free codecs;
you obviously need to have enabled universe and multiverse. I've not
yet come across a video Totem can't handle with all these installed.
