What are using now (you didn't mention anything) ? As a general answer, I think VLC could be a good choice

You probably still missing the media codec and perhaps the flash pluggin. Once you have that figured out you can try downloading VLC or Mplayer is a good one use SMplayer is the nicer GUI for Mplayer.
What distro are you using?

Good luck to you
