Media Video & Audio Players (Mp3,Mpegav,Div x,Dat etc)

Video Players


Fedora ships with a limited set of media player for both audio and video. For audio please read the MP3 player notes. For video and other multimedia (DVD, etc.) we will also be making use of a 3rd party repository: Livna. Make sure to have the Livna repository configured before executing the following. Note that many “dependancies” in libraries, plugins and codecs are shared between these applications and also the MP3 player applications.

The most popular media players (in order) are: MPlayer, Xine and VLC. Each has its own strengths. Install whichever you prefer although the first 2 are recommended.

About – MPlayer comes in a command line only interface (mplayer) or skinable GUI and it also has a powerful encoding tool MEncoder (also great for ripping or compressing audio/video). Additionally there is a highly functional web plugin allowing for many popular formats in Firefox/Mozilla (WMV, QuickTime, etc.).

Type the FOllowing Command in the Terminal.

[Puneet@localhost ~]$sudo yum install mplayer mplayer-gui mplayer-skins mplayer-fonts mplayerplug-in mencoder

Binary Codecs For Mplayer or Xine

  • Navigate to: <!– (if the link is down, please use a mirror) !–>
  • Select the package (.tar.bz2) matching your version of Fedora. Many 32-bit users will use: all-20071007.tar.bz2
  • Install the codecs:
    [Puneet@localhost ~]$ sudo mkdir -p /usr/lib/codecs
    [Puneet@localhost ~]$ sudo tar -jxvf all-20071007.tar.bz2 –strip-components 1 -C /usr/lib/codecs/

Vlc Player

VLC – VLC is a simpler media player with an easy to use interface. It also supports DVD playback. While most needs should be met with Xine and MPlayer some prefer VLC.

vlc supports almost any video type.

  • Installation through yum with Livna enabled:

    [Puneet@localhost ~]$ sudo yum install vlc

Real Player

Download RealPlayer rpm from here . Next open a terminal and go to the Folder you downloaded it. Install it by typing:

[Puneet@localhost ~]$ sudo yum install compat-libstdc++-33
[Puneet@localhost ~]$ sudo rpm -hiv RealPlayer10GOLD.rpm
[Puneet@localhost ~]$sudo yum remove HelixPlayer


[Puneet@localhost ~] $ sudo yum install xine xine-lib-extras xine-lib-extras-nonfree
[Puneet@localhost ~]$ sudo yum install gstreamer-ffmpeg ffmpeg ffmpeg-libs

MP3 and Audio players :How To’s


About : – Gnome users should have them already installed. If you don’t have it, to install it type:
[Puneet@localhost ~] $ sudo yum install gstreamer rhythmbox
To add mp3 and other audio support type:

[Puneet@localhost ~]$ sudo yum install gstreamer-plugins-good gstreamer-plugins-bad gstreamer-plugins-ugly


About :- Amarok is a pretty good audio/mp3 player for KDE. Of course you can install it under Gnome or any other Desktop Environment too. To install it type:

[Puneet@localhost ~]$ sudo yum install amarok

Adding mp3 support:

[Puneet@localhost ~]$ sudo yum install amarok-extras-nonfree


About : – Audacious is another audio player similar to old winamp 2.x. To install it type:

[Puneet@localhost ~]$ sudo yum install audacious audacious-plugins-nonfree-*
If you want to use your winamp 2.x skin with audacious simply copy winamp’s *.wsz skin to /usr/share/audacious/Skins/

If your tags are in a different encoding than utf8 you can force audacious to use it:

Preferences -> Playlist -> Metadata -> Fallback character encoding -> iso8859-7

If you want to add in queue mp3s when double clicked edit this file:

[Puneet@localhost ~]$ sudo nano /usr/share/applications/fedora-audacious.desktop
And change



Exec=audacious -e


About : – This audio player is no longer used, you could try audacious instead, but if you still want it type:

[Puneet@localhost ~]$ sudo yum install xmms xmms-libs xmms-mp3


Configure Flash Plugins :FireFox

If you visit a page which needs flash to be displayed correctly click on
the the missing plugin icon and Firefox will automatically install it
for you. Restart firefox and type about:plugins in the address bar. If
the plugin has been successfully installed you should see ‘Shockwave Flash’ among plugins.

  • Adobe Flash Plugin

Alternativelly you can install the Adobe Fedora Repository and install/update Flash plugin easilly. Open a console and type:

Type The Following Commands in The Teminal One By One .

[Puneet@localhost ~]$ sudo rpm -ivh

[Puneet@localhost ~]$ sudo rpm –import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux

[Puneet@localhost ~]$ sudo yum install flash-plugin

For Update Type :

[Puneet@localhost ~]$ sudo yum update flash-plugin

Another Flash Plugins

Open Source Gnash Plugin

Fedora 8 comes with an open source flash plugin. To install it type:

$ sudo yum install gnash gnash-plugin

Gnash for some reason installs its plugin into /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins when it needs to be in /usr/lib/firefox-

So to fix this type:

$ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/ /usr/lib/firefox-

So Be careful to replace the correct Firefox version in the above command.
For the New Version Like I have :

SO Mine Plugins will install on /usr/lib/firefox-

Alternate Way to Install Gnash Flash Plugins

Go to Applications->System Tools->Yum Extender

Click ON-> Package View

Now Search For ->Gnash :in Available Package

Choose The Packages Depending on Ur Version No.

Note: Thanks to Nomb for that info!

leigh123@linux have made some packages for the release of F8 as the Fedora version is still lacking some key packages like ccsm + fusion-icon.
These are the latest snapshots (0.6.99)

1. Install the fusion repo.

suwget cp compiz-fusion.repo /etc/yum.repos.d/

2. Install compiz-fusion ( you will need to remove the fedora compiz packages first and also delete the old configs /home/*/.config/compiz and /home/*/.gconf/apps/compiz or none of the plugins will work)


[Puneet@localhost ~]$ rm -rf /home/*/.config/compiz

[Puneet@localhost ~]$ rm -rf /home/*/.gconf/apps/compiz


Uninstall all the above Packges By Selecting

Applications->Add/Remove Software

Add/Remove Software -> Search->Installed

Search For Compiz and Apply.

After Removing or Uninstalling All The Compiz Packages

Type in the Terminal :-

suyum install compiz-all fusion-icon-all compiz-fusion-plugins-unsupported compiz-bcop ccsm emerald-themes

Leigh123@Linux have a fix for the compiz-fusion error in F8

* Opening CompizConfig context* No GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap with direct rendering context ... nor with indirect rendering, this isn't going to work! * Using the GTK Interface

You will need to downgrade xorg-x11-server-Xorg

For i386

suwget rpm -U --oldpackage xorg-x11-server-Xorg-

For x86_64

suwget rpm -U --oldpackage xorg-x11-server-Xorg-

If this works OK for you you will need to ban xorg-x11-server-Xorg from updating

sugedit /etc/yum.conf

and add this line


at the End.

And Press Ctrl+O to Save and Ctrl +X to Save You r Done

Leigh123@Linux Regards to drhilbert
Many thanks to drhilbert  for donating the web space  and bandwidth for the compiz-fusion repo 

For F8 srpm’s


Video Graphics Drivers

Note: To install video drivers you must first install the Livna Repository as stated above.


Just Type The Command Below :-

[Puneet@localhost ~]$ sudo yum install kmod-nvidia

Installing ATI Driver :-

Regards To Leigh123@Linux From The Fedora Forum .

Click this link to make sure your card is supported by this driver ( ATI cards 9250 and below are unsupported )

1. Install fglrx driver.

Type these commands in a terminal for the Livna driver


[Puneet@localhost ~]$ su – rpm -Uhv yum install kmod-fglrx xorg-x11-drv-fglrx xorg-x11-drv-fglrx-libs-32bit yum update kmod-fglrx xorg-x11-drv-fglrx xorg-x11-drv-fglrx-libs-32bit service fglrx restart fglrx-config-display enable

If you install a new kernel you will have to reboot for fglrx to work

2. Edit xorg.conf


[Puneet@localhost ~]$ su gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Then add these sections.


Section “Extensions”
Option “Composite” “Enable”

Section “ServerFlags”
Option “AIGLX” “on”

Section “DRI”
Mode 0666

Don’t forget to save the changes(ctrl+0) and Exit(ctrl+x)

Finally, the following options are useful in the section “Device” :


Option “UseFastTLS” “0”
Option “BlockSignalsOnLock” “on”
Option “ForceGenericCPU” “off”
Option “KernelModuleParm” “locked-userpages=0”

After Editing Don’t Forget To Restart X Server

Press Keys :- Ctrl + Alt + Backspace
3. Check for direct rendering.

Type these commands in a terminal


[Puneet@localhost ~]$ fglrxinfo

The output should look something like this.


display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: Radeon X1300/X1550 Series
OpenGL version string: 2.0.6458 (8.36.5)

And this command :-


[Puneet@localhost ~]$ glxinfo

The output should look something like this


name of display: :0.0
display: :0 screen: 0
direct rendering: Yes
server glx vendor string: SGI
server glx version string: 1.2
server glx extensions:
GLX_ARB_multisample, GLX_EXT_visual_info, GLX_EXT_visual_rating,
GLX_EXT_import_context, GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap, GLX_OML_swap_method,
GLX_SGI_make_current_read, GLX_SGIS_multisample, GLX_SGIX_hyperpipe,
GLX_SGIX_swap_barrier, GLX_SGIX_fbconfig, GLX_MESA_copy_sub_buffer

If you can’t get direct rendering try adding this line to the “Device” section of xorg.conf


Option “UseInternalAGPGART” “no”

That’s it 🙂

Yumex :Graphical interface.

My Friend Ashish Told me About this When I was not to much familiar with Yum .

Graphical Interface ( yumex )

Yumex – Yum Extender

If you are not familiar with console(yum) you can use yumex. Yumex is a GUI (Graphical user Interface) for yum to simplify all the  commands Given in Yum . To install it type:

$ sudo yum install yumex

From the Terminal.

** Note: For the rest of the guide I’ll be using yum for installing additional packages. If you prefer it you can  install packages through yumex.
After Installation U can Use it From Applications-System Tools ->Yum Extender

Now in The Yum Extender Go to -> Package View.

It Will show -> Updates ,Available ,Installed ,All Package Options

Select The Desired Option as Per The Requirements .


Configure Yum.


yum is an interactive, automated update program which can be used for maintaining systems using rpm.

yum is software installation tool for Red hat linux and Fedora Linux. It is a complete software management system. Other option is to use up2date utility. yum is designed to use over network/internet. It does not use CDROM to install packages. If you are using fedora you don’t have to install it, it is part of fedora itself.

yum.conf – Configuration file for yum

yum – Yellowdog Updater Modified

yum [options] [command] [package …]

Additional configuration files are also read from the directories set by the reposdir option (default is ‘/etc/yum.repos.d’ and ‘/etc/yum/repos.d’). See the reposdir option below for further details.

These repositories ‘sign’ their RPM files to make sure they are valid when downloaded. Import the GPG keys to these repositories:

[Puneet@localhost ~]$ sudo rpm –import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/*

Now u can Download any Packages Provided by Fedora Repositories by Using :

[Puneet@localhost ~]$ yum -y install [package name]

Note : -y is used for yes

For applications that are against Fedora policies (MP3, DVD, MPEG, Binary Drivers, etc), a third party repository should be used.

[Puneet@localhost ~]$sudo rpm -ivh

[Puneet@localhost ~]$sudo rpm –import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-livna

Now if u use :

[Puneet@localhost ~]$ yum -y install package-name

Third party packages will be installed from livna repositories safely.

Package-name is the Name of the Desired Package

yum plugins

  • presto

Presto is a project that provides faster, smaller size downloads to Fedora users. With presto plugin enabled you use deltarpm repositories to download only the part of the rpm that has change, thus saving you bandwidth and time. To enable it open a terminal and type:

[Puneet@localhost ~] $ sudo yum install yum-presto deltarpm

Next we have to make some changes to the .repo file to support downloading from deltarpm repositories.

Presto Repositories

To use presto in Fedora, you need to have some presto repositories enabled ,How to Given Below :-
Now Type :-

[Puneet@localhost ~] $ sudo nano /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates.repo


change it from

name=Fedora $releasever – $basearch – Updates

name=Fedora $releasever – $basearch – Updates

or to

name=Fedora $releasever – $basearch – Updates
depending on your Fedora version.

Now Save Press (Ctrl+O)

and Exit Press(Ctrl+X) .

Now each time you try a yum update you should see a ‘Loading “presto” plugin’ mesage.
it Helped me a Lot Thanx To .

Before we run our initial update, we might as well remove things that we’re going to replace or remove anyway. No sense in updating something you’re just going to turn around and remove, right?

[Puneet@localhost ~]$yum -y remove totem*

Unless you’re using a laptop:

[Puneet@localhost ~]$yum -y remove bluez-libs pcmciautils

Now that the Livna repos are installed, it’s time to start the initial system update. Back in the terminal window, type in:

[Puneet@localhost ~]$yum -y update

This could take a while, depending on the number of updates your system requires, so we’ll use this time to make some preferential changes.

Yum Basic Commands For the Knowledge :-

Here in the Commands Below application_name is the Name of The Required application.

* Install an application

[Puneet@localhost ~]$ sudo yum install application_name

* Remove an application

[Puneet@localhost ~]$ sudo yum remove application_name

* Install an rpm from your hard disk using yum to resolve dependencies

[Puneet@localhost ~]$ sudo yum localinstall application_name

* Search for an application

[Puneet@localhost ~]$ sudo yum search application_name

* Find info about an application

[Puneet@localhost ~]$ sudo yum info application_name

* Update the whole system

[Puneet@localhost ~]$ sudo yum update

* Enable a repository

[Puneet@localhost ~]$ sudo yum –enablerepo=repo_name

* Disable a repository

[Puneet@localhost ~]$ sudo yum –disablerepo=repo_name


Configure Sudo & Meaning

Language is Case Sensitive SO Better Watch Each And Every Word or Better copy From Here and Paste in the Terminal. 🙂

Defination :-

sudo means “super user do”. Only users that are in the admin group listed in /etc/group have the ability to use sudo to do root activities by default. sudo performs the actions as root.

su means “switch user”. You can use it so switch to any user.

I think that the time limit for sudo is 10 minutes of inactivity before it will ask for your password again.


Now Configure :-

Go to Application ->System Tools->Terminal

[Puneet@localhost ~]$ su –

Password: ->Write Your Password

Hit Enter ->

[root@localhost ~]# echo ‘loginname ALL=(ALL) ALL’ >> /etc/sudoers

:-if u Don’t Want Password to Be Prompted.


[root@localhost ~]# echo ‘loginname ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:ALL’ >> /etc/sudoers

:-if you don’t want to be prompted a password.

loginname is Your Name of localhost other than root well it is not case sensitive 🙂

The First commond is Recommended for The security Reasons.

It is Only an alternative of sudo in Place of su in the Terminal.

It is optional for u ,you can directly yum commands from your root.

Now you can Install an Application Using sudo as a Local Host or Directly by the Help of Yum from the Root.


Fedora 8 :Installation

If you boot from the Live CD, select the “Install to Hard Disk” option from the menu to run the installation program. If you boot from minimal media or a downloaded kernel, select a network or hard disk resource from which to install.

Installation From Dvd.

1) First Go to Bios and Make Ur Dvd as First Boot and Remove second and Third Boot,Save & Exit.
2)Insert Dvd and I Prefer Watch This Video .
How to Partition Hard Disk Tutorial Extras:




I have Given Dual Boot Partitions earlier 🙂

If you have an empty hard drive or wish to delete the entire contents of your drive, then let the installer automatically partition or remove everything and partition.

If you wish to dual-boot or save some contents on your drive, then select custom Layout partitioning. I recommend at least 3 partitions of Free Space :

1) 10GB / main partition,

2) 10GB /home partition

3)About 1GB <swap> partition.

4)/boot Partition 1 GB

/ Partition is the main partition is where your applications will be installed.

The /home partition will hold all your personal data (larger is better).

The <swap> should be at least as large as your physical memory (if you wish to support things like ACPI hibernate).

/boot is Used For Booting


Boot Loader

If you have a blank hard Drive or wish Fedora to be your Primary Operating System, then leave the default options here. This also works for dual booting with other systems (ex: Windows).

If you wish to preserve Windows as your primary operating system, then install Grub on the / partition, NOT the MBR. To do this, select Configure Advanced Boot Loader Options and install to First sector of boot partition. I use Bootpart from Windows 2000/XP to load Linux .:)

Network Setup

The networking options will default to dynamically configure the network using DHCP. This will work for most high speed internet users.

NOTE: IPv6 – If you select Edit under Network Devices you can disable IPv6 for Fedora. This should not be necessary, however it may be helpful to disable here and re-enable later if you know you have problems with IPv6.


Thanx 🙂

Dual Installation Windows and Fedora 8(Linux)

First of all Let us Take a Free Hard Disk or Empty ( Example of 80gb Hard disk.)

First installation is Your Window Installation 🙂 ..

Question is dat How to Partition the Hard drive it’s simple 🙂

Ans : Boot From Windows xp,2000,xp professional,98 cd.

Hard disk Partition :Make Three Partition (two for Windows let’s Say c:,d: and one for linux say e:/)

Install WIndows in Drive C:/ or As u Prefer(Let us take c:/)

Configure Windows Completely all the drivers installed:)

Now Boot From Fedora 8 Dvd and Follow Step Wise Installation just leaving your Windows Partition.

There is A grub Configuration which is Helpful in the Dual Boot .

Now after Configuration :Go to ->applications-> System tools->Terminal

No Need TO change Grub Config If it is Setup During Installation 🙂 

Now  Care fully  Follow steps below:-

vi /boot/grub/grub.conf

at the end write this :-

title Windows XP
root (hd0,1)
chainloader +1

The root (hd_,_) would vary, depending on where your XP was.
 Numbering starts at 0, for the first drive, and 0 for the first partition on that drive.
 so, (hd0,0) would be the first partition on the first drive.
 (hd0,1) would the the second partition on the first drive, and so on.

My config Now:

HD1 (IDE) Part 1 : C:> ntfs (Dynamic volume) WinXP
Part 2 : D:> ntfs
HD2 (SATA) Part 1 : E:> ntfs
Part 2 : Linux swap /dev/sda2
Part 3 : Linux Fedora 8 root /dev/sda3
