Playing .avi and .vob files


Hi,
I have installed Fedora 14 on my PC. However I am not able to play .avi and .vob movie files. When I play them using Movie Player it is giving a message for requirement of following plugins:
  • MPEG-1 Layer 3 (MP3) decoder
  • DivxMPEG-4 version decoder
when i install them and play again it is showing location not found.

Please suggest a wayout.

Thanks in advance
Fabe

I recommend installing VLC. That's likely the easiest fix.

It's missing a dependency, libmpcdec.so.6. It may be missing other dependencies; once you find and install libmpcdec.so.6, you may get another error message about another dependency. And so on.

If you install from the repos with Yum, Yum normally resolves dependencies for you. However, Fedora 14 has reach end-of-life. You may not be able to install VLC from the repositories with yum (I'm not sure because I am not a regular Fedora user, though I have used it from time to time).

If you have to resolve the dependencies yourself, pbone might be your best bet:

http://rpm.pbone.net/

Alternatively, you can upgrade to a version of Fedora that is still supported.

you installed the UNSUPPORTED fedora 14
but are trying to install fedora 16 rpm's

that will NOT work

please install fedora 16
THEN install the fedora 16 rpm's

for vob DVD files VLC is a good player

GnomeMplayer is a good one
and so is the QT frontend to Mplayer
SMplayer
I would also install the mplayer ALL codec package from the mplayer web site
see Mjm's page for Fedora 16

Remember also that avi and vob are just container formats. Your real trouble is support for the codecs contained inside them (mp3 and divx, in this case).

The vob container, btw, is designed for holding dvd-compliant mpeg1/2 streams (and related audio formats), and avi is capable of holding just about anything.

The master piece solution
hello fabe856,
fedora has copy right issues with playing media. It says mp3 codes missing and when yo try downloading it takes forever.

1.download rpmfusion for your fedora 14 or any version from http://rpm.pbone.net/ make sure you choose an appropriete rpm for your "uname".
2.go to the terminal as root
3.install rpmfusion as in "#rpm -ivh rpmfusion"
Quote:
#yum install vlc
even if your connection is slow it will download and install, i had the same problem and that solved it for me.
