Question RPMFusion in Fedora 13 (Goddard)

So, I've finally made the move from Windows to Linux. With no previous experience, I think I'm learning quite fast. Managed to get MP3's playing in Rhythmbox. However, I just cannot get WMV videos to play. Apparently I need RPMFusion. Ironically, every site I've been on giving help on playing WMV's, produces the same problem. RPMFusion requires version 15 or greater. I just don't have the data to upgrade to 15 right now...perhaps end of the month. Does someone know what I can do to get my videos running on F13 for now? Please.

You'll have to get the rpmfusion repo install files for F13 from the rpmfusion F13 repos. As root:
Code:
# rpm --nosignature -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/releases/13/Everything/i386/os/rpmfusion-free-release-13-2.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/releases/13/Everything/i386/os/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-13-2.noarch.rpm
And for the libdvdcss package you'll need for playing commercial DVD's).
For 32 bit F13:
Code:
# rpm --nosignature -ivh http://rpm.livna.org/repo/13/i386/libdvdcss-1.2.10-1.i386.rpm
For 64 bit F13:
Code:
# rpm --nosignature -ivh http://rpm.livna.org/repo/13/x86_64/libdvdcss-1.2.10-1.x86_64.rpm

Ok Thank you. Did this, then downloaded ASF demuxer, some additional packages and WMV 8 & 9 decoders and the relative packages. Download freezes here for some reason though. I gotta get through this! I use these videos for training and need to be able to display them on my laptop! Rebooting...

Perhaps your best bet for getting wmv files to play would be to install "ffmpeg". No promises. ffmpeg comes with a simple command line player called "ffplay".
Code:
ffplay /path/to/your/media.file
Either that, or mplayer with the windows codecs installed. Search the forum or Google, or visit the mplayer site for instructions on how to do that.

Well, maybe not so much wmv in ffmpeg.. in F16, the only "Demuxer" found in ffmpeg:

D xwma Microsoft xWMA
..nothing for wmv.

Yes I did that, and it's now finally working! Just watched one of my most important training videos on health and safety. It played through successfully.

Thank you for your help. You rock!
