i have recently installed ubuntu 16.04 lts in my lenovo g50-70.
i am unable to play any video file in the default player.
when i open a video file it says some plugins missing.
how to install them. from where can i get these?
i can play youtube videos in firefox.
 
Well, the player may only play certain kinds of video. Which is pretty common for any player, no matter the OS.

You should be able to install them via the player itself. Check the options or other sections within the player. If not found there, then I would visit the Ubuntu website and look there.

Also, the YouTube in FireFox uses different things to play the files than the normal media players most OSs come with.
