Here's one way: http://fedorasolved.org/multimedia-s...s/win32-codecs

You might also find adding this package RPM Fusion of benefit for installing applications not included by default in Fedora.

DangerMouse's AutoTen is the easiest way

So does totem, if you install the various gstreamer-plugins. But VLC is great, too. I still prefer (S)MPlayer, though, it feels more "convenient" to me.
