Smile Fedora Multimedia Codecs offline


Hi,

I install Fedora 15 on my machine. but it doesn't support mp3 and other multimedia codecs by default and I have very slow internet connection. How can I download mutimedia codecs with all it's dependencies on other machine which has internet connection and then same I can install on my machine?

Thanks in advance

Hello,

Read here about downloading packages without installing them, if your other machine has Fedora 15 installed with the same architecture - http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/yum-downloadonly-plugin/

Cheers,

Josh

Gsteamer plugins are small. Takes almost no time.

This is the most productive link with the absolute best code to install Gsteamer plugins for Fedora ,great web page.

If the other computer you are using to download the packages has Fedora 15 installed, you can use what I posted before.

because fedora will NEVER install by default non opensource code
Software that REQUIRES a license to be bought ( like mp3,wmv,mov,rm,...) need to be installed by you IF you live in a country that these ARE free to use without paying the patent and copyright royalty's .Then you can install mplayer and it's codecs package ( see:Mjmwired)

fedora offers a paid for set through totem media player -- $30 us i think
( you will need a internet connection )

or see dangermouse's page and use his "autoplus" , was autoten
http://www.dnmouse.org/autoten/
install and run the script

or

see mjmwired's page
http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mjm-fedora-f15.html
http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mj...a-f15.html#mp3
http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mj...l#mediaplayers

a internet connection is also required for the rpmfusion repo ( software repository )


off line ? see mplayer.hq
http://www.mplayerhq.hu/design7/news.html
http://www.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/codecs/
these codecs ONLY work in mplayer. gmplayer is in the fedora repos
