after enabling both free and nonfree RPMfusion repos on my fedora 25 I use the suggested command for installing everything:

dnf install gstreamer{1,}-{plugin-crystalhd,ffmpeg,plugins-{good,ugly,bad{,-free,-nonfree,-freeworld,-extras}{,-extras}}} libmpg123 lame-libs --setopt=strict=0

As by here

but I get that a lot of packages are not available:

No package gstreamer1-plugin-crystalhd available.
No package gstreamer1-ffmpeg available.
Package gstreamer1-plugins-good-1.9.2-1.fc25.x86_64 is already installed, skipping.
No package gstreamer1-plugins-bad available.
No package gstreamer1-plugins-bad-extras available.
Package gstreamer1-plugins-bad-free-1.9.2-2.fc25.x86_64 is already installed, skipping.
No package gstreamer1-plugins-bad-nonfree-extras available.
No package gstreamer1-plugins-bad-freeworld-extras available.
No package gstreamer1-plugins-bad-extras available.
No package gstreamer1-plugins-bad-extras-extras available.
No package gstreamer-plugins-bad-nonfree-extras available.
No package gstreamer-plugins-bad-freeworld available.
No package gstreamer-plugins-bad-freeworld-extras available.
No package gstreamer-plugins-bad-extras-extras available.

Please, what should I do? Many thanks :)

An alternative to rpmfusion would be https://unitedrpms.github.io/. They are ready for F25 now.

It would be a poor alternative.

Why? Works for me.

Apart from the question which repository to use, I get what I need with this command:

sudo dnf install gstreamer1-libav gstreamer1-plugins-bad-free-extras gstreamer1-plugins-bad-freeworld gstreamer1-plugins-good-extras gstreamer1-plugins-ugly ffmpeg

These are all available in rpmfusion for F25, too.

You are using a dumb command that tries to install non existent packages

You would get the same on F24

[leigh@main_pc ~]$ sudo dnf list gstreamer* |grep rpmfusion

thanks but unfortunately the dumb command is in a askfedora sticky. I wish the would provide an updated command on rpmfusion website. Fedora is such a nice distro, even for newbies, especially if you love Gnome. And once "installed" rpmfusion codec packages you have a pefect desktop machine. Fedora or RPMfusion should consider providing more updated sticky infos imho :) (as they do at unitedrpms)

Just because the command is "dumb" does not mean it's not working correctly. The command simply tries to install all various combinations of package names, and not all of them exist. Therefore a "--setopt=strict=0" was added, so dnf will continue to install the (existing) packages anyway. In short: The command is fine and all is as it should be. Just continue to install the packages.
