Fedora 18 missing Video decoder audio decoder codec installing

First You need to enable RPM fusion repositories. This can be done by

sudo yum localinstall –nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm

sudo yum localinstall –nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm

or manually install from

http://rpmfusion.org/Configuration

& download rpm link are given below

http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-branched.noarch.rpm

http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-branched.noarch.rpm

If any missing gpg key error come like this:

GPG key retrieval failed: [Errno 14] Could not open/read file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-free-fedora-18-x86_64

GPG key retrieval failed: [Errno 14] Could not open/read file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-nonfree-fedora-18-x86_64

Goto below site :

http://rpmfusion.org/keys

& download gpg key

http://rpmfusion.org/keys?action=AttachFile&do=view&target=RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-free-fedora-18

http://rpmfusion.org/keys?action=AttachFile&do=view&target=RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-nonfree-fedora-18

Copy the same to /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/ & rename to key name as shown in error.[Need root privilege to copy files]

In case you are installing i386, please rename the file name accordingly.

If fedora 18 beta installed, then install ‘gstreamer1’ is required instead of gstreamer. So search & install gstreamer1 codec

sudo yum install gstreamer1 gstreamer1-plugins-good gstreamer1-plugins-bad-freeworld gstreamer1-plugins-ugly

Same step, but install following for fedora 17 :

sudo yum install gstreamer gstreamer-plugins-good gstreamer-plugins-bad gstreamer-plugins-ugly gstreamer-ffmpeg libdvdread libdvdnav lsdvd

Alternatively, you can also install and use vlc or smplayer to view mkv videos–both can decode H.264

sudo yum install vlc

sudo yum install smplayer

Note: The new totem 3.6 uses gstreamer 1.0 & there is no gstreamer1-ffmpeg package  in repository. So you have to use vlc or smplayer till package comes.

Update : Install gstreamer1-libav for ffmpeg packages.

    Install gstreamer1-libav, it’s ffmpeg fork and i think rpmfusion decided to use it insted of ffmpeg plugin.

      Please correct ‘yum’ command with ‘yum install’ to install rpm & also need to be root privilege.

      yum install –nogpgcheck rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm

      • January 16, 2013 at 2:51 PM

        I just run

        # yum –nogpgcheck update

        to fix the problem. It’s work now. Thanks for your help

      Your i386 gpg key is missing. so rename the key with i386 instead of x86_64 in the end as given

      RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-free-fedora-18-i386. do the same for other key also.

      then copy file using root privilage to /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/

      sudo cp /yourpath/RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-free-fedora-18-i386 /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/

      or

      open nautilus using following command

      sudo nautilus.

      or

      ‘su’ command & copy the file in terminal
