    Totally off topic but atleast for MP3 playback, I think the last 2 patents expire in September, so this could potentially no longer be an issue for MP3 by Fedora 23. Shame it took so long that many people have long moved on to other encumbered codecs.

    As an ordinary user of course I can't understand this complex process (on my side and on rpm fusion side of things) for adding codecs.. while I of course understand patent/proprietary issues.

    GStreamer codecs are in free, nonfree is for proprietary software (i.e. Nvidia driver) or software otherwise under a non-OSI licence.
    The process is relatively complex (actually you just need to enable the repos downloading the RPMs provided on the website) because RPMFusion is an independent project from Fedora, which adheres to a strict patent-free policy.
