You need install and activate RpFusion and Livna

from terminal:

su (here you need write you root pasword)

Copy & Paste

yum localinstall --nogpgcheck

rpm -ivh

After install all codecs

yum -y install gstreamer-plugins-bad gstreamer-plugins-bad-free-extras gstreamer-plugins-bad-nonfree gstreamer-plugins-ugly gstreamer-ffmpeg ffmpeg mencoder ffmpeg2theora mplayer libdvdcss

Or you can install easly with PostInstallerF
