Connect your machine to the internet first, then as root execute the below

wget http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-21.noarch.rpm
wget http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-21.noarch.rpm

yum -ivh rpmfusion-free-release-21.noarch.rpm
yum -ivh rpmfusion-nonfree-release-21.noarch.rpm

Double click on the media file and it will ask you for permission to download the codecs required to play the file. Once all the downloads are complete, close and play the media file again.
