Default A application/x-ms-dos-executable decoder plugin is required to play this stream, but not installed.

how do you know which dll is missing? I followed:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats

Is this a windows virus kinda thing? why does it need an executable?
why a dll and not a codec? how can linux simulate a windows dll?

I also found a bug report:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/totem/+bug/290425

"missing dll" is kinda vague.
