comment Unable to display the language Ubuntu 13.04
sudo apt-get install --reinstall ubuntu-desktop should re-install the Unity desktop and all the packages needed, but my guess you are having an issue because English is not your default language(?). The bar on top and left are probably not showing because you have a graphics card driver being loaded on boot, did you install any graphics card drive previously before the upgrade?

comment Why some videos play only in a particular media player?
There is a small utility called Mediainfo (mediainfo.sourceforge.net/en) that can display all the required information of a video file (video and audio types), use it to analyze the files sent to you and give us the information about the type of encoding used on them, it will make it easier to troubleshoot this problem you are having.
