sudo yum install gstreamer-ffmpeg

However, If you need full instructions for enabling the RPM fusion repositories here they are also. The first two lines add the necessary repositories. The last line installs the necessary plugins for variety of video formats as well as viewing DVDs.

sudo yum localinstall --nogpgcheck

sudo yum localinstall --nogpgcheck

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.254 .

nope , doesn't work for me for some reason. evem vlc throws the error "No suitable decoder module: VLC does not support the audio or video format "h264". Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this." . Im using fedora 20 and vlc 2.1.4
