    If you're looking for an all-in-one media player you can try mplayer, xine or vlc. Personally, I like vlc. You can install them with apt-get if you don't already have them. To install the codecs you need, if you're using Gutsy, try this:
    Code:
    $sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/gutsy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list
    $wget -q http://packages.medibuntu.org/medibuntu-key.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -
    $sudo apt-get update
    $sudo apt-get install w32codecs libdvdcss
