You need to add some extra sources for software.

http://rpmfusion.org/
http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories

These should sort you out.

you don't. that's for windows. Linux doesn't need codec packs. What issues are you trying to overcome?

Follow Satyaveer's advice and see
http://wiki.centos.org/TipsAndTricks/MultimediaOnCentOS
Before using the extra repository, read the advice in
http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalRes...epositories%29
and install yum-plugin-priorities:
http://wiki.centos.org/PackageManagement/Yum/Priorities
Set the CentOS repo to 1, EPEL to 2, and RPM Fusion to 3. This is vital, or else yum will start updating things installed from one repo with the contents of another, and horrible things may happen!
