Just remember the following steps all need to be done as the “root” user.

Step 1: Add the livna Repo for DVD Playback

rpm -ivh http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release.rpm

Step 2: Add the Adobe Flash Repo

rpm -ivh http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe-release/adobe-release-x86_64-1.0-1.noarch.rpm

Step 3: Install RpmFusion Repos

su -c 'yum localinstall --nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-18.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-18.noarch.rpm'

Step 4: Install Multimedia Applications

yum -y install lsdvd libdvdnav libdvdread ffmpeg gstreamer-ffmpeg gstreamer-plugins-bad gstreamer-plugins-bad-extras gstreamer-plugins-ugly libdvdcss flash-plugin
