Install gstreamer plugins

I'm trying to launch totem from the command line to view MP4 video source.  An error comes up saying that I need to install MPEG4 Video Decoder, then it tries to install gstreamer-plugins-bad but fails saying that It cannot complete.

How can I manually install these plugins using yum.

Watch Question

First you need to enable the rpmfusion repository. In a terminal, type 'su' to make it a root terminal, then type:

rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm
rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm

Afterwards, install the gstreamer plugins. Here's the line to get them all:

yum -y install gstreamer-plugins-bad gstreamer-plugins-ugly gstreamer-plugins-bad-extras gstreamer-ffmpeg
