Media support

May 22, 2008 9 comments
There have always been a lot of whining about Fedora is not supporting all kind of patent
troubled media support. But is so easy to add it, if you live in the right country.

rpm -ivh http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-9.rpm
yum install gstreamer-plugins-bad streamer-plugins-bad-extra gstreamer-plugins-ugly xine-lib-extras-nonfree xine 
totem-backend -b xine
This might not be legal your country !!!

If you want to install Adobe flash plugin (Closed Source), it is easy too:

rpm -ivh http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe-release/adobe-release-i386-1.0-1.noarch.rpm
yum install flash-plugin libflashsupport


In the future i hope that free media formats will more used, so we don't need all this s**t. 

Thanks to the Livna contributors and others to make it so easy.

EDIT: made some adjustments based on the comments.
