Read the part on third party repositories (and the rest as well if you're a newbie), then install mplayer, mplayer-skins, mplayer-fonts and mplayerplug-in. And win32codecs. You can install vlc as well.

Did you install totem-gstreamer? totem-xine? Xine used to be more versatile but it's the gstreamer version that works best nowadays. Btw, don't forget to install the gstreamer-plug-ins (gstreamer-10-ugly, bad, ffmpeg, etc.).
