First make sure sound is working in Wine in general. The workaround in the AppDB is specifically for mp3-crippled distro packages, and assumes your sound is otherwise properly set up.

As for which method to use to install the codec, if you have access to a Windows install, copying the file over is the easier method, as installing WMP9 is a buggy process, even with winetricks.  However, since you want video, too, you may need the core WMP9 dlls anyway. I have not tested video embedded in Powerpoint; I do know that Powerpoint relies on the WMP engine, and WMP9 will play wmv files, and xvid avi files (if xvid is installed), but not mpg/mpeg files.
