    Hello Linux community,
    I have attempted to install TechSmith Camtasia decoder,
    but I get an error stating No package cache is available.
    I have attached a couple of screenshots.
    Any help would be most appreciated.
    Thank You.

    I'm sorry I failed to mention that my system is Red Hat based.

    You should still be able to add the package ffmpeg -- although the method of adding it is different.

    Use Root privileges for the below commands

    TRY
    yum install ffmpeg


    *If that fails, then try

    yum localinstall --nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm

    THEN (this will install many codecs)

    rpm -Uvh http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release.rpm

    yum install mencoder libdvdnav gstreamer-plugins-bad gstreamer1-plugins-good-extras ffmpeg2theora gstreamer-plugins-bad-free-extras gstreamer1-libav gstreamer1-plugins-base lsdvd ffmpeg gstreamer1-plugins-bad-freeworld gstreamer-ffmpeg gstreamer1-plugins-ugly gstreamer1-plugins-base-tools gstreamer1 mplayer gstreamer-plugins-ugly libdvdcss gstreamer1-plugins-good libdvdcss2 libdvdread gstreamer1-plugins-bad-free gstreamer1-plugins-bad-free-extras gstreamer-plugins-bad-nonfree


    # if only ffmpeg is needed
    # yum install ffmpeg

    I was able to get rid of that first error. I did so by going into the
    /etc/yum.repos.d directory. I modified the packagekit-media.repo file. There was a line that stated
    metadata_expire=-1
    I changed it to 0.
    The error went away, but now I have a new one. :(

    I've attempted to follow the steps provided above but resulted with the following:

    [root@d311 /]# yum install ffmpeg
    Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit, rhnplugin
    This system is not registered with RHN.
    RHN support will be disabled.
    Setting up Install Process
    No package ffmpeg available.

    Do I have to really register for the RedHat Network?
    It's not like if I'm using RedHat for a business.

    The first question should be, why are you using red hat and what version of red hat is it?
    Red hat has been enterprise-only for a number of years so you may either have a very old version or a "cracked" version both of which are rather useless.

    You can get binary-compatible versions of red hat via Centos and Fedora for free and each come with core repositories that will have regular updates and certified software. Additionally you can add non-free repos like rpmfusion rather easily.

    Non-enterprise red hat linux was discontinued in 2004: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Hat_Linux

    In summary, don't use Red Hat unless you are running a business.

    Hey MikeyD,

    "The first question should be, why are you using red hat and what version of red hat is it?"

    I am using Red Hat Enterprise Linux, because I not only like the look and feel, I work with RHEL at work. I am using version RHEL 6.0...I don't find it rather useless, as I have stated, again I work with it at work.
    I gain a lot more when I am at work and the system comes a lot more easier to me. It's more of a experiment/experience type deal. I'm not running any business and none for profit.
    My business is gutting it.

    I understand I use RHEL at work as well, but my point is RedHat is not designed for personal use, which is why you don't have access to the repositories unless you want to buy a very expensive license.

    CentOS is a fully open-source, community-drive downstream project supported by RedHat and is binary compatible with RHEL. CentOS is similar to RHEL as it is generally believed to be more server-centric.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CentOS

    Fedora is also a community-supported project owned by RedHat that is arguably more geared for personal computing. Its aim is building an OS on only free/open-source software so you'll have to add repos like rpmfusion if you want any proprietary software/drivers.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fedora_(operating_system)

    Both are rpm-based and use yum as a package manager. You're better off using these as there will be more community support, more regular updates, and obviously you don't need a RHEL license to access the repos, but you'll still get an OS that is compatible with RHEL with the same or similar software/commands/system structure/etc.

    Right on MikeyD; I used CentOS before in school. I am also familiar with Fedora. I will switch over to either CentOS or Fedora.
    Thank you. :) Thank you for the help arochester and DevynCJohnson.
    It is greatly appreciated.
