What kind of media files are you trying to play. I think fedora doesn't come with libraries for playing patent encumbered formats like MP3, so that might be your problem. I am not a Fedora user, but I believe there are fairly easy ways to install that stuff. I'm sure you can find that info in the Fedora forum, or maybe someone here can tell you.

why don't you run a yum at Terminal like "yum update amarok" or "yum groupinstall sound-and-video". Of course, you can only do this as a root.

I had never heard of RMVB files before but about 30 seconds googling educated me (Google is your friend ). You can download a realplayer or mplayer (or mplayer derivative like gmplayer), vlc etc. will play these files. It seems you need the Real audio codecs to play them.
Cheers,
