That should grab them for you, I would also suggest you install amarok, as it is the best media audio player IMHO. You can find it with a synaptic search.

They have to keep the non free, or "dirty" codecs in a non standard repo because of legal reasons. I think they are all hosted in the UK.
Multiverse is enabled already. I'll try that again though...

"Couldn't find package win-32" is what it says.
