No Go Video

I have tried everything I have read in Red Hat books, but I cannot get avi files to play on Fedora. They go well on Ubuntu - anyone have any advice? Thanks

Re: No Go Video

Did you try using mplayer to play avi files? For me, mplayer plays almost all formats flawlessly. You can install it from rpmfusion.

Extra note..if mplayer is Movie Player, I have it on my screen but it refuses to play files as it does not have appropriate codecs to run. Can't play mp3 files either

Re: No Go Video

Follow the instructions from this page - RPM fusion configuration to setup rpmfusion repository.

After you setup rpmfusion,
Code:
 yum install mplayer
And No, mplayer is NOT media player. That is totem. In order to play mp3,

Code:
 yum install gstreamer-plugins-good gstreamer-plugins-ugly gstreamer-plugins-bad
. This might help.

I am not sure I follow. Do you see the video in red in totem or mplayer? I am not sure what would cause that at this time ...

Re: No Go Video

Yes. VLC will also work. If you have mplayer installed already, try that and see if you like it. It is lighter (not a problem usually though).

Re: No Go Video

there is an easy way to install just about any audio/video codec you will need in Fedora.

install Autoplus, and run it. Then select the "Install Most Codecs" option.
