I can't play a video on Fedora

Hello.

I recently installed Fedora for the first time.
However, the video does not play.
Please tell me the solution.

I installed Fedora-Workstation-Live-x86_64-30-1.2.iso.

You need install programs as the great Vlc from UnitedRPMs or rpmfusion

Next…

su
dnf install vlc

Are there any error? Can you play any other video?
If the problem is with some videos you need to install vlc. If there are any error, please post it.
To install vlc:

  1. Enable RPM fusion repositories by downloading and installing associated packages from this link: RPM fusion configuration

  2. Install vlc media player using this command:
    sudo dnf install vlc

Hi,
after installing rpmfusion (rpmfusion.org):
sudo dnf groupupdate multimedia
should install codecs to play video, listen to music, etc. -if you don’t want to use vlc exclusively.
