Yagnesh,

If you want multimedia codec support in FC6, you can visit
zod.freshrpms.net.  The
best way to get the rpms you want is through yum.

First, download the following files:
http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/freshrpms/fedora/linux/6/freshrpms-release/freshrpms-release-1.1-1.fc.noarch.rpm
(optionally, also):
http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/freshrpms/fedora/linux/6/freshrpms-release/freshrpms-release-1.1-1.fc.src.rpm

Then, as root, issue the following command:

rpm --import http://freshrpms.net/RPM-GPG-KEY-freshrpms


Then, install the two rpm files mentioned above, which will add the
freshrpms repository to your yum list.

The easiest step is the last one (presuming you have a live broadband
connection):

yum install vlc


Voila! You can now play almost all the multimedia formats on FC6.  You can
also download other multimedia software / libraries from freshrpms.

You can use similar procedures to install even more software from
rpm.livna.org

All the best with FC6.
