http://www.africam.com/wildlife/index.php# is a site I enjoy. It works, 'out of the box' in PCLinux , Freespire, SAM, and Ubuntu 7.10, but not in Fedora 8.
Please can someone tell me where I can download the neccesary codecs? Thanks.

PS I tried searching the forums first buy couldn't find anything really relevant.

Thank you DM, but when I click on the F8 link, I'm asked if I want to open it with Gedit and then it just opens as a text file. So what am I doing wrong please? Sorry, but I'm complete novice with Fedora, but have had a little experience of PCLinux.

This is what it said on the screen:

For the time being I've switched back to PCLinuxOS so I can watch online streaming cams this weekend, but if someone has a fix for Fedora I'd come back probably.
I do have Fedora 8 on another computer.
Thanks for trying to help.
