    Hi and Welcome !

    Fedora doesn't support Proprietary Media formats out of box. You have to install necessary codecs for that.
    Execute this
    Code:
    yum -y install vlc
    VLC Player supports most of media formats.
    Your machine must have internet access for package installation through yum.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Yes, your machine must have internet access. yum will download and install packages itself. If your machine doesn't have internet access then it will be a little tricky to install packages.
