Sounds like a codec problem... Anyone know what's the codec needed?

If you're interested, there's Linux Mint which is a direct derivative of Ubuntu. It's supposed to have video codecs pre-installed.

Hm... That's weird. I've seen many, many screencasts of Compiz-Fusion where the people played with their effects while videos were running. There were no problems at all.
