Fedora supports Free and Open Source Codecs: Ogg Vorbis, Theora, Flac, Speex, Wav formats. It does not include by default other codecs like mp3, h264 due to their closed and patented nature. Should you want to add them, you will need to include RPMFusion repository. I suggest to use Search to see how to do the installation. Hope it helps.

Have a look at http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mjm-fedora-f11.html it is a guide to installing codecs for video and audio and most other things. When you install Fedora you will probably find it useful.

You can use softwares like mplayer, vlc to get support for almost any codec.
