I'm not familiar with that distro, but my suggestion would be to install VLC. It has support for many codecs, and is available for most distros.

You're going to show a Fedora user how to enable web-page video playback, using a web-page video? No written instructions? Atleast I can download the ogg.

Yes well.

These *are* video tutorials we're doing, but the irony didn't escape me either. :)

My thoughts were to watch them on a second computer, download the ogg, or something like that. Still, the irony is ripe I'll admit.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
