    impossible to watch these videos?

    Hi, I know, it is an old question but I cannot find a solution anywhere, there are some video format that I cannot reproduce despite having all well configured (at least I think it is), you can find them in this satirical italian site

    I tried and same thing happened. It seems like it's a wmv (Windows Media Video) format. I thought it would work to install "gecko-mediaplayer" but it didn't.

    Mr Berlusconi has sabotaged the website.

    I tried again, but used Windows XP instead. And same thing happened. So it's not Ubuntu.

    I suspect the problem has to do with the long file name. I can't view them in my Linux or Mac machines..

    thanks for all the answers, I tried the videos on a windows system and they do not work, you are right, it is not Ubuntu. Perhaps it is indeed Mr Berlusconi because he owns the site , I will write an email to the support. Thankyou again.
