Id be guessing that a plugin of some sort has played silly buggers with your audio playback. Try booting from an Ubuntu disc and open the files from there and see if they play fine. If not then you will need to talk to whoever manages Ubuntu (sorry I don't know who!) Also, you could try an alternative media player - you don't use VLC because if you do then try another player. If you don't use vlc then use it - its a great multiple format media player and it's open source.

Which media player did use? Normally, you can install totem & gstreamer to play just about any multimedia file.
