running mp3 and video on Fedora

As default Fedora installation does not support player for MP3 and some video format like avi and MP4, we have to install either MPlayer or VLC to play these files.

To install MPlayer and VLC:

Copy the freshrpm from here

Install this rpm:

$rpm -ivh freshrpms-release-1.1-1.fc.noarch.rpm

Now install MPlayer and VLC

$ yum -y install mplayer vlc

After successful installation you get the 'MPlayer' and 'VLC media player' menu in the Applications => Sound and Video
