Hey there,

I've only been running Fedora for about two weeks. I'm having a hard time watching videos, specifically youtube videos. Every time I go to play one it tells me that I am missing, "H.264 decoder". What happens is; it asks if I want to look for it, I click Continue, but it can't find it. The same can be said for' "MPEG-4 AAC decoder".

I've looked all through Yum and searched for these files. I can't find anything. I downloaded several entire groups including "visual internet" to see if something in there could help.

What do I need to do to get youtube playing? I want to watch Blender tutorials and such, but I can't. It's very frustrating.

Thank You;

DaCoda;

Hi, some sites uses flash plugin yet, then you need install flash plugin...

su

yum -y install http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe-release/adobe-release-i386-1.0-1.noarch.rpm

yum -y install flash-plugin

Next install all codecs..

yum -y install http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-20.noarch.rpm

yum -y install http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-20.noarch.rpm

yum -y install gstreamer-plugins-bad gstreamer-plugins-bad-nonfree gstreamer-plugins-ugly gstreamer-ffmpeg gstreamer1 gstreamer1-plugins-good gstreamer1-plugins-bad-freeworld gstreamer1-plugins-ugly gstreamer1-libav
