F12 Multimedia-Based Applications & Setup

The one drawback to Fedora is that it does not really come bundled with any multimedia-based applications due to patent and licensing issues (RedHat is a stickler for playing "by the book"). However, with yum and repositories, it is a simple matter to setup applications such as Acrobat Reader, Audacity, BitTorrent with AzureusBurning CD/DVDs from the command prompt, Flash, gnomebaker & k3b, Java, Mplayer, Microsoft True Type Fonts, the nvidia driverRealPlayer, MplayerSkype, and audio players.
