I am trying to update with yum, but I keep getting an error: Missing Dependency: faad2 < 2.5 is needed by package ffmpeg-libs. I can't even donwload the rpm and try to install it without getting this warning. Any help would by much appreciated. Thank you!

What I usually do in cases like this is just use yumex and exclude ffmpeg-libs from the update. Then, when the update is done try to update again. This will usually work the kink loose. You might just have to wait a day or so before you can update this package.

Thank you. I will give it a shot. Do you think that this issue will be fixed with Fedora 7? I woul d rather have the update instead of going around it. However, I will do what I have to do to get over it. Thank you for your help; Go Gators!

The issue has nothing to do with the system itself. The repo from which you updated faad2 is different from the repo which you used to update ffmpeg. I'd wait a couple of days for the repos to be updated, then you should be able to update ffmpeg.

This can happen if you use LIVNA and FRESHRPMS at the same time. Try to reinstall the packages using just one repo.
