I have installed 'rpm fusion' , then all gstreamer things...then, updated everything...then installed vlc again... but, still h.264 problem. Smplayer also shows a problem. I need help. Is there any solutions ?

The exact error is vlc says 'h.264' error . And , I should say, I just want to play videos. But, Fedora 20 is not allowing to play any videos . Please help. :(

Please run vlc from a terminal and tell us what output you get.

@Monjur...If you can post the output of yum update (you can press "n", after you have copied the name of all the packages!)
