Smile Decoder for xvid mpeg-4

Hi guys, I did that:

rpm -Uvh

yum -y install gstreamer-plugins-bad gstreamer-plugins-bad-free-extras gstreamer-plugins-bad-nonfree gstreamer-plugins-ugly gstreamer-ffmpeg

and then i play a video.avi but i can't run. an error appears and says to me that i need a complement fot XVID mpeg-4 layer to run it. so at finaly I downloaded and compiled that:

but anyway i can't run my videos. Please, what do I have to do? Thank you very much

not sure what you are using to try to run it. but i know that the default video player for fedora (totem) usually refuses to play certain videos no matter what i do.

mite i suggest vlc or mplayer or xine:

sudo yum install vlc mplayer xine

ok I'll try it, I hope you are right.. Thank you very much. Then i'll tell you what happens.

edit: i'm trying to run videos from AVI extension. In the other hand, i descovered that I can run in my default video player files with MPEG extension

Edit again: Thanks Now I can run my vidieos. Thank you very much, my friend!
