You will need the win32 codecs additional package and flash player. There must be a guide on the ubunto wiki.

install mplayer and all ( including the win32)

http://www.mplayerhq.hu/design7/dload.html
http://www.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/codecs/ ( all-20071007.tar.bz2 )

and for flash videos
install adobe flash

all of the above should have prebuilt binaries in the ubuntu repos
