HI Kostas,

How did you installed your decoders onto your machine? Did you used
the auto installer or you have selected them by hand in packagekit (or
in yum)? Because fedora leaves this decision in your hand. Basically
is it so because  if you know your needs, with-what, - the system *
will not * overwrite/complement your selection. This is true for the
other triggers also, themes, fonts and many more parts inside of the
system - as it as for the decoders. Maybe this is the actual problem,
and thats why the players are looking for the resource locator with
mpeg 1-2 decoder. Technically DVD's base TS video is Mpeg2 and Mp3
voice. Newer discs/machines are using inside H.264 and possibly higher
audio compression....seen many types.

So to use the auto installer for decoders, you have to between the
first system customisations choose such movies, files where you surely
know that you need decoders. Try to play it - as many as you could -
and rest will be done by packagekit. The best is using movies -
because of that files has audio *and* movie parts. After this I add
dvddecrypt, and the other as you mentioned above - and will work
wonderfully. This is the way how am I installing video/dvd part inside
fedora after I have rpmfusion has been integrated fully.

HTH,

Zoltan
