Hi and welcome to LQ.

Fedora 14 is no longer supported. Its end of life date was in December 2011.

I suggest you install a supported version (Fedora 17) and have a look at:

http://fedorasolved.org/multimedia-s...s/win32-codecs that is one distro agnostic way to do it. As for fedora itself there might be another way involving just an rpm package intallation

Haven't tried Fedora so far. But in Ubuntu and distributions based on it (like Mint, Xubuntu etc.) you get the choice to install them during setup.
You can choose them manually if looking for GStreamer ffmpeg video plugin and GStreamer extra plugins in the Ubuntu Software Center.

When it comes to Fedora. I've found a page here describing how to set up mp3 support on Fedora 16. Seems to work the same way for older versions. Including 14

Good luck

Kororaa is an installation disk which sets up Fedora with all the codecs installed for you. Other good distros with codecs on the installation disk are Fuduntu, Mepis, Mint, and Parsix. Ubuntu lets you download them during installation, but the server can be slow: it once took me over an hour!
