You need to add the following lines to /etc/apt/sources.list file or you need to make sure you have enabled Universe and multiverse repositories in /etc/apt/sources.list file
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
Make sure you have the following two lines save and exit your file
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hardy universe multiverse
deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hardy universe multiverse
Now you need to run the following command to update the source list
sudo apt-get update
Install mplayer using the following command
sudo apt-get install mplayer
if you want to open mplayer just type
gmplayer
or
You can Open from Applications—>Sound&Video—> Mplayer Movie Player
Install libdvdcss2 and w32 video codecs in Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron)
Support for WMV, RealMedia and other formats has been bundled into the w32codecs package. This package is not available from the Ubuntu repositories due to licensing and legal restrictions.
For Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron) Users run the following command
sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/hardy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list
Then, add the GPG Key using the following commands
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install medibuntu-keyring
sudo apt-get update
For i386 Users install Codecs using the following command
sudo apt-get install w32codecs libdvdcss2
For amd64 Users install Codecs using the following command
sudo apt-get install w64codecs libdvdcss2
Using above download locations you can install most of the mutimedia codecs for ubuntu.
Mplayer Plugin for Firefox
If you want to install Mplayer with plug-in for Mozilla Firefox run the following command
sudo apt-get install mozilla-mplayer

How do i fix the distorted sound i am getting?


If you are talking about some speakers of almost any type the paper in them gets old and brittle and they can even come apart--paper and cone separate from the frame of the speaker.

Usually if you can get at them to look you will be able to see if this has happened.

If this is not a speaker issue let me know what equipment you have etc.

Apparently this bug has been fixed already, you can apply patch if you're advanced user or just simply update to newer Ubuntu (e.g. new 9.04, out yesterday). More info here:

Sounds like you have a bad speaker or where the mounts for the speaker are broke.

Poor sound/very low sound controls having no effect


That sounds like the main amp is failing. I suspect the unit will have one IC as the power amp, which will need replacing. You can have a look inside to see if you can see something like this:



power ic-ukkvwzzuppijvxoxp10or3yb-2-0.jpg If you do. Make a note of the number on it, it might say something like STK563. Then put your number into Google and it will give you a clue to how much it will cost and if it is obtainable. You can then either fix it yourself if you have the skills or take it to the repair shop.
