hello !... I have linux fedora 7 installed pc along with windows 7. I want to play audio & video songs in fedora. but the default media player with fedora is not supporting, so I wanna install other media player like vlc media player in fedora . plz help me in finding the media player for linux fedora & ( from which site It can be downloaded), give detail procedure for installation of this software.....thanks


Actually your media player does support all the formats that are available, however, you need to install the codecs for non-free items like MP3. If you use the rpmfusion & livna repositories then you'll be able to install the non-free codecs to play anything from encrypted DVDs to all your music (and I believe they have VLC as well). All the instructions are on the website.

My only question is why are you using Fedora 7? If your computer can handle Windows 7 then why not use the latest Fedora 12? You'll have more updated software and most likely a much better user experience.

Why are you even using such old fedora installation? I am sure your PC will be able to handle fedora 12. Linux doesn't have high requirements for running.
