Bug 307503 - A program requires additional plugins to decode this file. (*.mov)

Problem with your package manager it seems. Please report to Fedora.
Using KDE Developement Platform 4.9.1
A program requires additional plugins to decode this file. (*.MOV)
MPEG-4 AAC decoder
The following plugins are required. Do you want to search for these now?
Install GStreamer Resources
- The following packages were found:
Gstreamer crystalhd decoder plugin
Extra GStreamer "bad" plugins (less often used "bad" plugins)
An error occurred while running the transaction.
More information is available in the detailed report.
requires gstreamer-plugins-bad-free = 0.10.23-2.fc17
gstreamer-plugins-bad-free-extras-0.10.23-2.fc17 incorrectly claimed to be able to decode H.264. This was fixed in the gstreamer-plugins-bad-free-extras-0.10.23-8.fc17. For some reason, yum ends up finding the old version from the non-updated release, I don't think we can do much about that.
You cannot decode H.264 and AAC with packages from Fedora, you need to get gstreamer-plugins-ugly from RPM Fusion Free. The automatic codec search can only find that if you have the RPM Fusion Free repository already configured, which we cannot automatically do in Fedora for legal reasons. See http://rpmfusion.org/Configuration (you need only the "free" repository). So we cannot do anything about that part either.
For your information, the first problem will be solved in Fedora 18 because the gstreamer-plugins-bad-free-extras-0.10.23-2.fc17 package with the incorrect Provides will not be in an Fedora 18 repository. But you will still not be able to find a working H.264 decoder in Fedora's own repositories. (Please also note that the crystalhd plugin only works if you have a CrystalHD hardware MPEG decoder. It is not of interest to most people.)
