Can you try using mplayer on the command line, and post the output it gives, or 'ffmpeg -i'. Or any other way you know of to give us info about the video, i.e. the audio and video codecs used.

Are you sure the video was recorded properly, maybe it was recorded badly ?

Make sure you have the codecs installed on Linux too.
