Add this repository, if you haven't already: http://rpm.livna.org/rlowiki/

Grab the gstreamer-plugins-* packages, libdvdcss and libdvdplay. That should allow totem and rhythmbox to play most formats and allow you to play protected DVD's.

I don't think the packages you need are on the standard Fedora DVD. As elliot 678 said, you need to install the livna repository and install the packages from the internet.
If you are just asking generally how to install packages from the DVD:

Quote:
# rpm -ivh package_name.rpm
But you'd be better off using the internet where the latest versions of the programs are.
