MPEG support in fedora


how can i play .avi files in vlc.
whenever i try to play such files it says

Code:
No suitable decoder module:
VLC does not support the audio or video format "XVID". Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this.
how can i download suitable codec to play any dvd movies and any other video files

i recall having to install the good/bad/ugly plugins for gstreamer. You might have to enable an aftermarket repo first like RPM fusion and/or Livna...

I'm pretty sure you need the livna repo (rpm.livna.org).

I remember something about rpmfusion not wanting to host it due to some licensing issues (??)

Once you do that, search for gstreamer, then good, bad, and ugly packages and install them.

Did you just install it? because it's not listed in post #3.

If you did, them run this:

yum search gstreamer | egrep "good|bad|ugly"

Then "yum install" those packages. Post the output if it's something crazy.
