Hi Jos and Michael ,

I managed to import the file as the way that Jos has explained earlier. In 
order to play the file, I have to go Utillities/Setup-> Video Manager -> 
Select the file and enterr "mplayer" in the unique player command.

Then go back out to Media library/watch video/and  select the file to play.

Thank you very much for your help.
