is there a tool that identifies which codec a video needs in order to be played ?

not that i know of, but doing
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras will give you pretty much everything you need.

I guess Movie Player (GStreamer) checks for codecs and ask if you want to download it.
There is an application for Windows called AVIcodec, but I couldn't make it work under Wine
