Download them from other net connected PC, save them in removeable drive, and connect drive to your PC and install them.

You will need to download them from another Ubuntu system, and configure apt to keep the downloaded files (and not delete them after the install).

If you are truely a noob, you will find PC LinuxOS more easier to manage than Ubuntu, and yes it supports most codecs right out of the box.

Not at all. You can download from any machine, not only ubuntu. You can take them from HTML pages, no needed to install on the connected machine (http://packages.ubuntu.com/). And you don't need to tell anything to the ubuntu, just copy the downloaded packets to /var/cache/apt/archives/. There are also advanced tools as apt-zip (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=46282) to use removable media.

To do all of this, you should execute

Code:
apt-get install your-stuff
and see which packets are needed (and cancel apt-get). Then, go to your connected PC and download these packets for your ubuntu version, save them to the removeble media and, finally, copy them to the ubuntu packets dir (/var/cache/apt/archives). Then, re-run

Code:
apt-get install your-stuff
and all is done.

Have fun!

No internet connection it means you have to do it in offline mode right?

You can get the restricted format from ubuntu-repository. There is lot of in Linux shop and computer shop. If you online in your rental, you can download it and burn it in CD.

You can install the format just direcky from media player, in option tool.

Hope this will help you

He will need the codecs too. You can also download all from mplayer's homepage:

http://www.mplayerhq.hu

Don't forget to download 'all' codecs, not only linux or windows ones.
