Mysterious security cam vid

I am attempting to play a video file that has come from a security camera, under Ubuntu. I think it's a codec problem, but I'm not sure of the solution.

The header of the video starts with 4HKH. I believe this is indicates a H.264 codec. I've installed various packages that seem like they might support the file, but the best result I've gotten so far is through VLC, which indicates a file length of ~30 mins but will not play video.
Does anyone know what package/resource I need to introduce to get such a file to play correctly?
