Q. How can I play Quicktime movies with Totem on Fedora?
I get this error message:
The playback of this movie requires the following decoders which are not installed:
MPEG-4 AAC decoder
MPEG-4 Video decoder
A. You have Totem installed but for people who don't the command is:
dnf install totem
Next, make sure you have the livna repository activatated:
rpm -Uvh http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm
Make sure the atrpms repository is activated.
In file /etc/yum.repos.d/atrpms.repo place:
name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - ATrpms
then installed these packages:
dnf install libquicktime faac libfaad2 gst-ffmpeg gstreamer-plugins-base gstreamer-plugins-flumpegdemux gstreamer-plugins-good gstreamer-plugins-schroedinger gstreamer-plugins-bad gstreamer-plugins-bad-extras gstreamer-plugins-farsight gstreamer-plugins-ugly
Perhaps they aren't all necessary but this did the trick for me.
I was interesting in using Totem (which uses Gstreamer) to play Quicktime.
If you want to use mplayer there are different codecs you can use.
