Fedora 16 is no longer supported. Please download and install 20. Then install rpmfusion free & non free repository, and then you can install codecs which can play almost all video formats!

Edit: A tool perfect for newbies trying to install basic stuff post Fedora installation is Feddy - Install codecs, software, and more.... Install it and it will let you choose what to install using simple menu.

Mark (using the dot on the left) Tweaks and tasks and press Select. Mark Configure RPM... and Install multimedia... Mark anything else you need and press Select. It will all get installed. Easy!

Once you have the rpmfusion repositories installed, you also have access to the vlc package, which will play pretty much anything and will not need external codecs.
