I want to play a radio online .pls like the ones you can download at and others.

I used to play those in Audacious, in Ubuntu.

But in Fedora 17, I keep getting a "no decoder found" error message.

What can I do?

I'm not familiar with the .pls extension, but if pls is a non-free format, you would need some additional codecs to play any pls files.

You can add the free and nonfree rpmfusion repositories ( ) to see if they will help you to find a suitable decoder. (As a note, both free and nonfree repositories don't cost any money - see the FAQ for the difference between the free / nonfree repositories).

The instructions for installing the repositories are on the rpmfusion site ( ). I recommend trying the Graphical Setup via Firefox web browser option first, unless you feel comfortable with the command line.
