When I run a video on my laptop using Ubuntu OS, it gives an error - "The playback of this movie requires a MPEG-2 Transport Stream demuxer plugin which is not installed." What should I do to make it run? If something is to be installed, can I get the steps for that?

    Try this first:
    sudo apt-get install vlc
    If that works satisfactorily, you're done. If not, post back and we'll go a little deeper.
