VLC does not support the audio or video format "mpga"

I’m attempting to open a playlist file that I created in windows which contains streaming radio sites.

when i open it i get the following error message

No suitable decoder module:
VLC does not support the audio or video format “mpga”. Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this.

when i run LUBUNTU 14.04 and start VLC with the same file, it works fine.

perhaps there is a required decoder that i don’t have installed.

I found the solution. I installed the vlc-codecs package and it’s working now.

      Hopefully this can help someone with this issue.
