I had the same problem.  It turns out that there is a copy of faad2 that

a mystery.
Anyway... the solution is to download an older copy of faad2, such as
this one...

http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/6/i386/faad2-2.0-19.20050131.lvn6.i386.rpm

and install it over the current with the following command

rpm -i --force faad2...rpm

I am saying this all from memory, so I might not have the details
exactly right, but that is the jist of it. There are a couple threads on www.fedoraforum.org that discuss it.
Bingo. You are exactly correct. Thanks, I don't know how many hours I
sent in solving this problem. I wonder how this happened.

It may not have been a faad2 update that caused it. From memory it was moving libavcode.so.51 to a different package someplace. I had this problem and read on the freshrpms list to install libmp4v2 to get around this issue.


From the freshrpms mail list.

yum install libmp4v2


I had actually emailed this to work on the weekend so I have it handy.
