Have you installed ubuntu-restricted-extras from Synaptic Package Manager? Is it giving you an error message that you are missing any codecs or any error message at all?

i googled around a little bit and found that uninstalling totem and installing totem-xine would be better and now it works...i messed with a few other things in between but i dont think any of it did anything
