First, you need to set up the RPMFusion repos as explained http://rpmfusion.org.

Then, in a terminal run:

su -c 'yum install gstreamer-{ffmpeg,plugins-{good,ugly,bad{,-free,-nonfree}}}'

Should do it.

Installed all of the codecs but they dont work without mp3 layer -1 which does not seem to be available, almost had enough now after hours of installing and moving from site to site going round in circles with nobody really knowing how to get a working mp3 setup! I'm willing to bet somebody will answer this with a suggestion that I install the codecs. :-)

thats just weird. I've been using the packages from rpmfusion and the codecs work for me. Since Fedora 8, when we used livna btw.

I find this series of steps great when setting up "extras" in a new Fedora installation. http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mjm-fedora-f16.html

There's a full section on installing MP3 support.
