To view media files (such as .avi, .wmv, .mpg, rmvb) from the Samba server under Ubuntu 7.04 is very simple indeed. You just need to install totem-gstreamer player.
sudo apt-get install totem-gstreamer
To view DVDs under Ubuntu 7.04 can be just install the related codecs and totem-xine player.
sudo apt-get install totem-xine
For codecs installation, please refer to Unofficial Ubuntu Guide.
I am switching between these commands!

I installed a Ubuntu guest on VirtualBox, which is installed totem-gstreamer, to view the media files on my Samba server. It is running very smooth and you will not know that it is running on a virtual machine. I need not to install and uninstall the players again.
