    Firstly, it's ubuntu not urbuntu.
    Have you tried this guide www.ubuntuguide.com?
    And what error do you get, if you give more details then it would be easier for us to understand what's going wrong.

    never use easy ubuntu .It is untested software, poorly written & is known to severly break many many ubuntu installs.

    Open synaptic package manager. search vlc media player and install it. You will be able to play all major formats with it.

    @Ankit Agrawal, You must get the Restricted Formats in Ubuntu using Synaptic Package Manager.
    See my post Getting the Restricted Formats in Ubuntu Click here
