Getting Multimedia Files to Play

I'm trying to play mpegs and other restricted files on a G4 with Fedora 9 installed. I can't seem to find any information on where to find restricted codecs or how to install them. Does anyone know how to do this?

I'm not sure what you want me look at in the links you provided.

I've searched this forum, other forums, and Google.
I've looked through the stickies on related threads.

I can't seem to find anything regarding multimedia codecs for Fedora PPC.

Ok. I was rather hoping you would find what you needed there. I don't own one (PPC) so I have no direct experience. However, if your searches have turned up nothing at all, I guess it's down to waiting for somebody what knows how, to come along and offer guidance.

Or you can install mplayer with smplayer front-end which is far better than gstreamer-based Totem.
At least when it comes to play subtitled videos with various visual enhancements and so on.

Well, I just followed Dan's advice and searched for the answer..... You really ought to read the links he gave, as then you'll be able to save time and help yourself instead of asking others to do your work for you.

That being said, the instructions look the same for an Intel/AMD machine, the only difference I can see at first glance is a lack of totem-xine...
