Akshay Vyas said...

There's probably something wrong in your /etc/yum.repos.d
try running update with yum update if that doesn't work try yum clean all and yum repolist

You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

I somehow missed all the proper codecs when I installed my new Fedora. usually I go searching for that typical "10 Things to Do After Installing Fedora/Ubuntu/etc." type thing.
Couldn't play web films and such, so I finally got tired of it and went searching again and found your wonderful blog! Thanks a bunch for a concise and well presented, informative website!
