ffmpeg-libs-0.8.8-1.fc16.x86_64 requires

That occurs when I'm trying to update my fedora with testing-updates repo enabled. I guess it's about packages relations but I don't understand why does it happen. libvpx is installed and is to be updated to 1.0. Maybe that means that ffmpeg require the older version and don't allow me to change it. However why it still occurs when I dis-select libvpx package from update?

This is because of inconsistency between the rpmfusion and fedora repos. It should be fixed soon. For the time being, please update using the following command:

su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update --skip-broken'

(To update with updates-testing enabled).

Sorry, just habit. Corrected

If you REALLY can't wait for third party repositories to match up, and you REALLY need to use updates-testing AND --skip-broken, the best way to do so is by limiting that to the single package you are having trouble with.
