You know, this is so well hidden on the website that I can't find the faq for it!
It goes someting like:
yum install gstreamer-plugins-ugly ffmpeg
Ah, at last! Here it is!

Download and run Fedora Frog. It's a nice script that can get you most of the things you need for a home desktop.

What can it do for me?

Fedora Frog can:

* Install extra repositories [RPMForge]

Note: Not all repositories are mutually compatible. See the Warning mixing repositories

* Install GUI frontend for yum [yumex]
* Install commonly needed multimedia codecs
* Install DVD playback capability
* Install Java JRE and its plugin for Firefox

Note: You will have to accept Sun's licence

* Install Macromedia Flash plugin for Firefox

Note: You need to restart Firefox after installation

* Install extra fonts (including msttcorefonts)
* Install graphics drivers for nVidia and ATI cards

Note: You should restart your computer after the installation

* Install Gnome Configuration Editor
* Install numlockx to turn on NumLock on startup
* Set up Gnome to open System Monitor every time you push Alt-Ctrl-Del
* Disable CD blocking in CD-ROM
* Set up Nautilus to open new folders in the same window
* Install rar archiver
* Install Adobe PDF reader

Note: This is not necessery to read PDF documents, you can read them using Evince too.

* Install Gwenview and digiKam imageviewers
* Install XMMS (analog of Winamp)
* Install amaroK media player
* Install stream directory browser Streamtuner
* Install CD ripper Grip
* Install Xine, VLC, Mplayer multimedia players
* Install RealPlayer 10
* Install Skype
* Install Thunderbird e-mail client
* Install Liferea RSS reader
* Install Opera web browser
* Install CD/DVD burning utility K3b
* Install FTP utility gFTP
* Install File share utility DC++
* Install P2P BitTorrent client Azureus
* Install P2P eMule Client aMule
* Install P2P Gnutella Client LimeWire
* Install KDE Edutainment programms
* Install Photo-realistic nightsky renderer Stellarium
* Install Some additional games
* Install Alacarte Gnome menu editor
* Install Shortcut to browse files as root
* Install Some desktop backgrounds, icons, themes and screensavers

Note: Try changing your desktop background and look in Theme Details of System -> Preferences -> Theme

* Install fortune and make Gnome Fish-applet to use it

Note: It is recomended to run update before you run Fedora Frog
How do I get it?

To install Fedora Frog run these commands in terminal [Applications -> Ststem Tools -> Terminal ]

wget -c
tar zxvf frog.tar.gz -C ~

To run Fedora Frog run:

xterm -e ~/.frog/

Note! It is recommended to update your system before you run Fedora Frog. Type the command:

su -c "yum update" -

and enter the root password when prompted. BTW, this is "recommended".
