Question Fedora 11 and multimedia problem: mp3, mp4, xvid codecs and avermedia dvb-t


I'm new to a linux, but would like to explore it...

Everything works ok but multimedia sucks...
I'have tryed to play all of my multimedia files mp3, mp4, xvid, mp2 and it have missing codec. After trying to search for a codec if gives me this BS:

"Unfortunately, the codec you were searching for is not available in Fedora. A codec is a program that enables encoding and/or decoding of a data stream, in a specific format such as MP3, MOV, or WMV. There are a few common reasons why a codec might not be in Fedora's repositories:

* Many codecs are proprietary or patent encumbered.
* Some codecs may not be encumbered, but may be under an unacceptable license.
* It is possible that no one has packaged it yet. You might consider adding it to the Package WishList, or even packaging it yourself! "

Also another question is Avermedia USB Volar HX, Hybrid TV. Kaffeine finds one DVB-T channel, but it wouldn't display anything. Also MPlayer shows DVB-T, but say: Totem cannot play this type of media because you don't have appropriate plug in to play it.

You just need to download and install the appropriate codecs. Specifically, what type of file were you attempting to play when you got the error you mentioned?

Missing Codecs in Fedora 17

I can't play even a simple mp3 file on my Fedora 17. The Fedora help page informed me that I had a missing codec. Following the above advice I went to the RPMFusion link and 'enabled' access to the free repository. As far as I can see all I did was download a file. Then I down loaded another file to 'verify RPM Fusion's signing keys'. That's sitting in my downloads folder. What am I supposed to do with that? I'm a newbie and lost my way in all the RPMFusion technical talk.

Would anyone be able to assist me in using RPMFusion to get my Fedora 17 to play media?

fedora will NEVER ship with NON free software
so on new installs there will NEVER be mp3 support
about 99% of all music and videos will NOT work until you install the NOT free software

you might want to see Mjmwired's page for music players, adobe flash, java ( fedora ships with OpenJDK and NOT WITH Oracles java )
http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mjm-fedora-f17.html

also next time please do not drag up an old thread from 2009
Start a NEW thread
a lot of things have changed in fedora sense 2009

no worries John VV. I'm just starting to appreciate the whole free software thing. I'm also new to forums so next time I'll start a new thread.
