    However, as much as I love Fedora, I found that some of Livna's packages such as some XMMS plugins and VLC were very buggy since Fedora 8. However, it's the best repository offered until RPMFusion comes out.

    Look on the Fedora forum, there are two different scripts that will install all of the codecs and some additional fixes. Getting multimedia working in Fedora is real easy now.

    Re: codecs

    Sorry, missed this thread. Here is the contents of my script to give all of my Fedora boxes: Media Codecs, Flash, MS Fonts, and a little extra.
    Code:
    rpm -ivh http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-9.rpm
    rpm -Uvh http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe-release/adobe-release-i386-1.0-1.noarch.rpm
    yum -y install yum-fastestmirror gstreamer-plugins-bad gstreamer-plugins-bad-extras gstreamer-plugins-ugly gstreamer-ffmpeg flash-plugin libflashsupport nautilus-open-terminal unrar wget libdvdcss mplayer
    cd /tmp/
    wget http://corefonts.sourceforge.net/msttcorefonts-2.0-1.spec
    yum -y install rpm-build cabextract
    rpmbuild -bb msttcorefonts-2.0-1.spec
    rpm -ivh /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/noarch/msttcorefonts-2.0-1.noarch.rpm --nodeps
    cd /tmp/
    wget http://www.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/codecs/all-20071007.tar.bz2
    tar xfvj all-20071007.tar.bz2
    mkdir /usr/lib/codecs/
    cp all-20071007/* /usr/lib/codecs/
    ln -s /usr/lib/codecs/ /usr/lib/win32
