View Full Version : Maybe stupid question

22nd January 2008, 02:06 AM
hello everybody, i have one question, i hope that someone can give me an answer. I must say that my en. is not very good, so don't get laugh if i write something incorrect. I installed fedora 8 and was pretty satisfied, but i could not play dvx and dvd formats, mp3 is working but with downloaded codec. I tried to download codecs for formats that did not work but they are not free, does anybody knows is there a FREE codec for download for these things, and if does, where can i find them.

Your English is fine. It can be understood, which is what matters. There's a script for installing the (Free as in cost but non-free as in licence) codecs you need and lots of other stuff here, courtesy of Dangermouse:


Edit: Your thread title "Maybe stupid question" is a 'stupid' title :D You should really use a title more relevant to your problem, that way more people will probably read it and try to help. Some people will see your thread and probably ignore it otherwise. Please read the forum guidelines on how to use the forum.

Since before your sun burned bright in space, I have awaited a stupid question to ridicule.

Your's is fine, nothing to ridicule here, move along. Nice codec setup notes here.
