i am a new fedora user. i hav fedora core 9 installed. i think fedora is good for work. but, i can't play videos & DVD's in fedora. i am very confused....
if other linux distro like mandriva or slackware supports all multimedia, why not fedora??
whats the problem? i install 'fluendo mp3 decoder' to play mp3. they offer otther codecs, but, they r not free.
i hav no internet connection in my home pc. so, i can't use yum & other online software install tools. i use internet from my university campus.i didn't find any free video & DVD codecs for fedora 9.
i tried mplayer from 'freshrpm' site. but, it not install. it show error about dependencies. it show a list of libraries which are not installed like- libaac, libmad, libcaca etc. Are not those libraries included in fedora 9?
i also tried mplayer from a source tarball. it installs ok. i use-
./configure --enable-gui during compile.
it creates a menu entry. but, when i click it, no GUI appears. then i noticed,
skin directory of mplayer is empty. when i install some skin there, they didn't work.
so, now i am in great problem. what can i do now? is there any free video & DVD decoder pack for totem? i use gnome desktop.
i hav no other OS in my home PC. i need to play DVD's & videos in fedora.
plz. anybody helps me. give me details. any solution for me?
i again say, there is no active internet connection in my home pc. so, yum or other online installation tools will not work for me.
so, give any other method to download codecs as rpm or other format & install them directly from my hard disk.
plz. help me.
