How does "I can't watch a movie" equal "terible trouble"?

Please use useful thread titles, and no pointless exclamation marks. Question marks, on the other hand, *are* useful. Also see "please" and "thank you"

as root, run this...

rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/...ble.noarch.rpm
rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfr...ble.noarch.rpm
yum -y install gstreamer-plugins-bad gstreamer-plugins-ugly xine-lib-extras-nonfree gstreamer-ffmpeg

although i havent used it i hear that linux-mint has most media codecs installed by default because they are headquartered out of the country and the fbi cant force them to remove the mpaa patented stuff.

but it should be trivial to install codecs and media players on any modern linux distro.
