    Do you have the Windows codecs package (called w32codecs) installed? If not, then just add the Medibuntu repository to your software sources list and then install this package.

    This program is able to play anything. You can find VLC in the repositories. If it cannot play that file, then the file itself is corrupted.

    A shout-out to the Linux Mint team for their excellent port of Ubuntu.
