Check out to install the codecs and dvd drivers. You probably will have to add the required repositorys, also mentioned on that page

I use Kubuntu 7.10. If you follow the guide quoted (a) it's for Feisty, not Gutsy and (b) it's for Ubuntu which is Gnome - there are many similarities but e.g. ubuntu-restricted is different from kubuntu-restricted, and gstreamer tends to be for Gnome not KDE.

What kind of videos aren't working?
