My solution is completely empirical -- having had it work a few times in
the past. Whenever I have had problems with codecs and such, I install
mplayer and ffmpeg and all the files yum drags in with it. That seems to
fix the problem about 90% of the time...

I have a Gateway T-6321 that I recently had to re-install Fedora Linux v17 on.
I've put just about everything that was on there from before (Totem,
Clementine...Thunderbird etc.) but when I try to play movies in Totem or music in
Clementine I get errors such as:
Clementine: - "Your GStreamer installation is missing a plugin."
Totem: - "A program requires additional plugins to decode this file:
The following plugins are required:
MPEG-4 AAC decoder
Do you want to search for these now?
My problem is when it searches for these it tells me they're already installed?
What is the solution for this kind of error? is there a file I need? or a
missing piece of this puzzle?
Try installing these. You may have to install repository files for rpmfusion which you
can easily get from the net from their site.

Some of the packs mentioned may already be installed. Yum will simply skip them. Some I
may have posted more than once, so excuse that.
These are meta packs which pull in lots of decoders, plugins etc.
You can also install these packs for multimedia.
mozilla-vlc vlc-plugin-jack vlc-extras vlc ffmpeg2dirac ffmpeg2theora dirac mp3gain
Install flash-plugin from adobe.
Some packs may be redundant but they are small & also don't hurt anyone.
