Totem will not play H.264 videos; however, I do have "gstreamer1-plugin-openh264" installed.

Google Unitedrpms look at the info for HandBrake print the page for instructions.Click on bar at bottom move to right as the printer will leave off the end. Only print pages 1-3 as their about 230 pages of comments. After you load the repo for your version import the gpg-publickey. Then dnf install HandBrake dnf install vlc player The codec installed from from software install, cisco and added repo. HandBrake and VLC player from Unitedrpms work better on my machine and some of the codecs didn't install until I added Unitedrpms.

Thanks for the reply,

I already have the rpmfusion repos and codecs installed. Will the united rpms codecs interfere with the rpmfusion codecs? Also, I already have vlc and ffmpg installed from rpmfusion. Will I have to remove vlc and ffmpg?

You need to install x264-libs from

Thank, for the reply,

I do have rpmfusion repos added.

x264-libs 0.148-13.20160924git86b7198.fc25 x86-64 @System "installed" x264-libs 0.148-13.20160924git86b7198.fc25 i686 rpmfusion-free "not-installed"

The installed x86-64 package appears to be the correct one.

I have both repositories installing handbrake may solve your problem. It supplies a lot of these items. If you use dnf install vlc player and previously have it installed it will tell you conflicts.
