If you are not allowed to use usb drives in your workplace, then I suggest you do not even try it because this could obviously get you into trouble. As for installing multimedia codecs, can you let us know which Linux distribution you are using so that you can get responses that are relevant to your distro.

ask the admin at work, if it is regarding work computers and/or you lack the permissions.
and remember - people have lost their jobs for breaching the IT terms and conditions at work!

Poor you.
Seems you want to watch movies and hear songs behind your boss' back.
Befriend your system admin if u really cant do without it.
No non-root user is allowed to access storage other than personal or shared storage by default.
The sysadmin needs to set permissions for users on request and approval basis.

P.S.-- Get an iPod.
