I recently loaded Ubuntu 10.04 onto my Aspire one netbook. Try to play MP4 from my high def video camera and I can't get it to work. Any ideas? I'm a total novice but I can follow instructions. I'd appreciate any help.

System>Admin>Synaptic and install ubuntu-restricted-extras

then go here and follow the HowTo for the media codecs:- https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Medibuntu

Also, try a different player such as vlc. It's in Synaptic.
