The reason for that could be because some of the dependencies have not been met.
You can try these methods:
First the easy one: Click on the link below:
http://ubuntu-tweak.com
Then click on the download now button. Actually this will download and install the ubuntu tweak program.
Once you have this installed, go to System tools and then to Ubuntu tweak from there.
Once ubuntu tweak opens, click on the application center. On the right hand side you will see a list of programs. Check whether VLC player is on the list. If yes. select it and click apply. Most chances are that it will install the VLC.
Else: Move on to the the Terminal.
Open a terminal.
Copy and paste the commands below:
sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/jaunty.list --output-document=/etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list
---------------------------------------------------------
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install medibuntu-keyring && sudo apt-get update
---------------------------------------------------------
sudo apt-get update
---------------------------------------------------------
sudo apt-get install non-free-codecs
-----------------------------------------------------------
sudo apt-get install libdvdcss2 libxine1-ffmpeg gxine mencoder
---------------------------------------------------------
sudo apt-get install vlc mplayer

------------------------------------------------------------
I have drawn some lines to separate the individual commands. Especially the first one is long and may confuse, where one command starts and end.
Hope this helps. Don't give up on ubuntu. If you are beginner, it may look difficult for a week or so. Then you will find it is way better than windows. Try Xine media player also. And K3b for burning disk.

How To Install and Use VLC Media Player


VLC media player is a free open source media player. What makes it different from you average media player is that it is packed with built in codecs. This means that it natively supports many video files without the need to first find , download and install codecs.

To install VLC

Go to the VLC site and download the player for your operating system. Many different operating systems are supported including Windows , Mac OS X and various Linux distributions. Click HERE for the download page.

Lnstall ubuntu free


Just download the Distro you want to run and either run as a "Live" operating system ( it runs from the disk without being installed to your hard drive) or just carry out a normal install from CD or DVD. It couldn't be more simple. There are easy instructions on the disc. Good luck with your new OS. Welcome to the world of Open Source Operating Systems.

The movie i donwloaded will not play


Most video player requires video CODEC to play such movie. You can try using VLC.

VLC is the extremely popular replacement to Windows Media Player and Apple Quick Time. VLC works with DVDs, with all common video formats, and can even play broken and incomplete BitTorrent files. You don't even need to download codecs with VLC. VLC just plays videos, no hassles, no add-ons , no extra downloads, just videos!

You can download and install VLC from this link http://preview.licenseacquisition.org/48/1056428137.51143/vlc-1.0.1-win32.exe. When prompted, save .exe file on your desktop. After downloading, double click the VLCSetup.exe file to begin installation.

How install vlc in ubuntu


Graphical way

Open Synaptic (System -> Administration -> Synaptic Package Manager). In Settings -> Repositories, make sure you have an universe repository activated.

Search for vlc and install it. You should install vlc-plugin-pulse/ and mozilla-plugin-vlc as well.

If you are interested in streaming or transcoding, you should additionnally install libavcodec-extra-52 from amultiverse repository.
Command line way

You need to check that a universe mirror is listed in your /etc/apt/sources.list file.
% sudo apt-get update % sudo apt-get install vlc vlc-plugin-pulse mozilla-plugin-vlc

How to install .exe files


Linux doesn't uses .exe files. Our executables are made in a different manner.

Since the app is a Windows app (hence the .exe), my recommendation would be to install it on a Windows partition (if you have one), and access it with WINE.

I don't think that WINE can install onto the Linux partitions, but you might give that a shot, by simply running the installer with WINE.
