Hi all,

Please guide me about media player so that I could play mp3 and .mkv file formats on my fedora 18 lxde.

Thanks in advance

those are supported by mplayer. if your using the LXDE desktop look for the smplayer or mplayer or gmplayer exine gxine.
here is the fedora forum on that subject http://linuxg.net/how-to-install-smp...and-fedora-17/

you also might want to have a read through the "Fedoraforum.org" page
http://www.fedoraforum.org/

see that yellow link on the top of every page
"Fedora Set-Up Guides"
the very first guide is " Mjmwired "

for fedora 18
