$ sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras

If it can't install, you need to open up synaptic:

$ sudo synaptic

Open up Settings>Repositories and make sure the universe and multiverse repositories are active. Then go back to synaptic's main window and refresh your package information (the reload button).

Then close synaptic and try the first step again.
