Q:I Cant Play *.Mp3 Files,*.MPG,*.Avi files on my fedora OS ?

Ans: Hi Friends, Fresh Fedora OS,cant play anything of the above,You want 2 install some additional packages in order to play the above files.

For that you want to download 2 additional rpms from


the rpms are


(rpm installation is quite simple,double click on the rpm file,enter root password to authenticate

otherwise take terminal from applications-->system tools-->terminal,

type su
then enter root password,
after dat type

rpm -ivh /home/username/Downloads/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm
rpm -ivh /home/username/Downloads/rpmfusion-non-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm


after that try to play one mp3 file,then our system automatically checking for plug-ins from the repository which added above, same as in the case of
*.avi,*.mpg files
