Mplayer and the Win32 codecs are available in the package manager. Simply do a search for them and then mark for installation and install.
Also have a look at this link: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=565071

Maybe you should/could stay with 32 bit distro even on 64 bit CPU, at least for the moment... like many others.
NOTE 3: the w32codecs can be used on amd64 ubuntu (hardy, intrepid) with the i386 mplayer, but it requires manual installation and forcing the install. The i386 mplayer executable can be extracted (and moved or renamed to mplayer32 to keep it separate from the 64 bit version), and will use the ia32 /usr/lib32 entries and w32 codecs - but updated libraries (e.g. libx264.so.59 v.s .57) may also be required.
