  • Did you try SMplayer? According to Google that should be able to play it. sudo apt-get install smplayer. It does seem to require some graphical horsepower tho.

  • I honestly have difficulty to believe vlc couldn't play it. Can you post the video or it's part somewhere so I can try it? As long as it's not copyrighted of course..

    Try to install ubuntu-restricted-extras packages. This should fix the problem.

    The output from avprobe tells you it can not find the file. Run the command again, but make sure you specify the path for your file (and also note that the file name is case sensitive).
