RecueTechLA gave you a good start. Also install the non-free repository. At a terminal type:
su -
rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm (copy/paste that into a terminal window using right click/paste to paste. Keyboard shortcut won't work).
yum install mplayer kplayer mplayerplug-in libflashsupport

You might have to go into the preferences and adjust the settings for audio and video to make them work.

This is what the VLC website says:

Fedora 9 and Fedora 10 Use RPM Fusion for F9 and F10 (available for x86, x86_64, ppc and ppc64)
Install rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm for F9 and f10
$> su -
#> rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm
#> yum install vlc
#> yum install mozilla-vlc (optionnal)
I'm not a Fedora man myself so hopefully this makes sense to you.

If not I'll see what I can dig up.

Best of luck!

I have down loaded some videos from my sgh480 phone onto my computer, im running xp pro , the problem is i cant play the video files through my computer...


Hi There and Welcome to Fixya.

I highly recommend for you to download the VLC media player from here :

VLC Player

It's compact, it's fast and plays any video formats known to the computing world - and it's a freeware. All you have to do is to click on "Download" to get the installation files.

After completing the download, you can now have it installed. Per usual practice, restart your computer after the installation.

Hope this helps, Thanks for using Fixya.

The movie i donwloaded will not play


Most video player requires video CODEC to play such movie. You can try using VLC.

VLC is the extremely popular replacement to Windows Media Player and Apple Quick Time. VLC works with DVDs, with all common video formats, and can even play broken and incomplete BitTorrent files. You don't even need to download codecs with VLC. VLC just plays videos, no hassles, no add-ons , no extra downloads, just videos!

You can download and install VLC from this link http://preview.licenseacquisition.org/48/1056428137.51143/vlc-1.0.1-win32.exe. When prompted, save .exe file on your desktop. After downloading, double click the VLCSetup.exe file to begin installation.

I cant open my movies


if you are trying to play movies in Media Player, then Media Player will not support all the video file types. You can use VLC media player to watch movies and install a codec pack to watch movies in Media Player.

Open www.filehippo.com
On the right hand side, you will see K-Lite codec pack
Download and install the pack then you can watch the movied in Media Player.

You can download VLC media player from same link....

Unable to install vlc player and flash player at htc p3400


You double click on the video file you want to play. Make sure that you have the codec for the video file that you are about to watch.

Also when installing VLC, you have to make sure that "video" is crossed. Or else you have to either: install it again, or find all the video codec's you want. that as a little bit complicated so lets do that again k. first you can' really play vid's from windows to vlc. you go to vlc, then 2 file, open vid, then find your movie on your desktop or wherever you put it and play. simple as that cya.
