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!

How To Install and Use VLC Media Player


VLC media player is a free open source media player. What makes it different from you average media player is that it is packed with built in codecs. This means that it natively supports many video files without the need to first find , download and install codecs.

To install VLC

Go to the VLC site and download the player for your operating system. Many different operating systems are supported including Windows , Mac OS X and various Linux distributions. Click HERE for the download page.

After you have selected your operating system , click on any of the downloads to start downloading VLC.

Click next on the welcome page of the wizard , and then read the license and click I agree.

Now Select the installation method you would like. For the average user , the recommended installation will be sufficient and click next when ready.

Now select the installation directory. The default directory will be fine.

When ready , click Install and VLC media player will be installed and ready for use.

All your media files will now automatically have the VLC icon displayed on them and when double clicked , automatically play with VLC. Alternatively , a file to be played can be dragged into VLC player.

I connected the drive and its not playing dvd.do i need to download anything before it works?


Hi,
Your issue need a specific software to be able to play a DVD.
For your issue, normally whenever you purchase a DVD (either a writer or a player) it should came with a DVD decoder for you to be able to play one. If you don't have it you can install it.
Here is the where you can download it. (2 Option) 1. you can download a free codecs. Go to google and type in k-lite. Choose the first option which is free-codec.com then look for the k-lite and install the full version. 2. Download VLC, its a player that came with a codec.
Hope this will help you and resolve your issue.
Thank you for choosing Fixya

My acer laptop was formated, since I got it back I cant play any dvd nor cd... I do have media player but message appear stating that the following files cant be played..


Yes, you have missed the codec files.

Download "Windows essentials Codec pack", below is the link

http://download.softpedia.ro/dl/7dd4bba62e0c22582981d1a9546796dc/4b45cc15/100071211/software/MULTIMEDIA/VIDEO/DIVX/WECPSetup.exe

Install this, you will be able to play almost all files in your windows media player.

I recommend you use VLC player, it can play any file formats both Audio or Video without any Codec and moreover it's completely open source. Below is the VLC player download link

http://www.videolan.org/mirror-geo.php?file=vlc/1.0.3/win32/vlc-1.0.3-win32.exe

That's it

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.
