You must enable rpmfusion repos to install all that:

RPM Fusion (Free & Non-Free):

su -c 'yum localinstall --nogpgcheck'
  • Códecs:


su -c 'yum install gstreamer-plugins-bad gstreamer-plugins-bad-free-extras gstreamer-plugins-bad-nonfree gstreamer-plugins-ugly gstreamer-ffmpeg'


su -c 'yum install xine-lib-extras xine-lib-extras-freeworld k3b-extras-freeworld'

This guide gives a great run down on how to install useful things like fonts and codecs that are not included in Fedora by default because of their licensing (and more).

Read your way through it and you can skip sections that are not relevant to you e.g. you may not care about setting up a samba server to share with Windows PCs.
