Hi, my problem is that i can't play videos on fedora(even on firefox). The message says: "MPEG-4 AAC decoder, H.264(Main Profile) decoder are required to play the file, but are not installed" but when i want to install them it says that they are already installed.

How did you try to install the codecs that showed they were already installed?

You probably need the gstreamer plugins as well, most likely gstreamer1-plugins-ugly or gstreamer-plugins-ugly.

Please install and install codecs from there, to me that is done when install mplayer.

I assumed the rpmfusion repos were already enabled since he has the codecs.
