hello,

You probably have some music/video players installed. if not choose one for your desktop env (gnome/kde/...?) - on KDE I'm using amarok for music and VLC for video. You also need to add rpmfusion repositories (if not yet done) to get additional codecs and tools such as vlc:

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

then install stuff , for example :

  $ yum install vlc

Note: if you need mp3 support, or other non free codec, take a look at this post https://ask.fedoraproject.org/en/question/9111/sticky-what-plugins-do-i-need-to-install-to-watch-movies-and-listen-to-music/
