You will need to use a third-party repo that provides "non-free" multimedia packages. Or learn how to compile it yourself.

This inconvenience is one of the major reasons I chose not to go with Fedora. I understand the reasons for the rigid policy w.r.t. non-free stuff, but I prefer convenience...

Consider VLC.
