I already downloaded the new Ubuntu ISO, now I need to know if I can play those two file types and how...

Any information is useful

Try the following from the command line:

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras

or just for mp3 support:

sudo apt-get insatll libmad0

The other option is to run 'Applications>Sound & Video>Rhythmbox' and the application should help you with the installation of the codecs

For AVI's try:

sudo apt-get install vlc
