We knows that every release of Fedora never add codec to installation package. This is an offline suite of codec you can use to play most format of multimedia file.
Before you downloading and installing, we thinks you must know the content of the package. This codec suite contains :
- VLC Media Player
- gstreamer plugin bad
- gstreamer plugin ugly
- gstreamer ffmpeg
- and some package dependencies needed
This is how to download and install this ofline codec suite for Fedora 16 :
First, download the fedora 16 codec suite offline
Copy the downloaded archive to your home directory
Type this command in terminal :
$ tar -xzvf fedoraspot.com-fedora_16_codec_suite.tar.gz
$ cd codec/
$ su root
Password : <-- insert your root password
# yum -y install *.rpm
or if your computer is absolutely offline, try this way :
# rpm -Uvh *.rpm
But, this ways will no longer usable if you have installing same package with some package included on this codec suite. If you find the conflict package problem, see what package are conflict and then delete it from codec/ directory and run the command again.

Use it if you need and take your own risk. We ain't take responsibility if this suite (in case) make your system unstable. But, we ensure that every offline package are tested by us and work normally.
