[How To] Install mpeg-4 aac decoder, ffmpeg plugin for Fedora 18

Fedora is one of the widely used Linux distro for desktop. It offers good experience to the users and provides lots of new features.

Once can watch video, listen to audio and use audio/video software's too. In case if your Fedora is unable to play audio/video then it might be an issue with the audio/video codecs.

To install the video and audio plugins/codecs on Fedora 18:

1) Install and enable the RPM Fusion repositories

wget http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-18.noarch.rpm
rpm -ivh rpmfusion-free-release-18.noarch.rpm
wget http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-18.noarch.rpm
rpm -ivh rpmfusion-nonfree-release-18.noarch.rpm

2) Install the plugins/codecs

su -c 'yum -y install gstreamer-plugins-bad gstreamer-plugins-ugly gstreamer-ffmpeg vlc'

3) Restart the machine (not required but worked in my case)

Note: The plugins are also available  HERE for download.

That's it!  😉
