Once someone suggested suggested that I probably have conflicting repos I revisited the atrpms repo and removed it. But I'm now not able to reinstall the above packages. I'm not really hip to what all the different packages do, so can't decide if I'm really missing something :) But, like all good geeks, I'd like to not leave this issue unresolved. So...

seems to me that 

yum install xine-lib-extras-freeworld \
 k3b-extras-freeworld \
 gstreamer-ffmpeg

would work based upon the above repos being enabled so I have to wonder
if protectbase is stopping it. I'm not a user of protectbase and I
somewhat think that plugins such as protectbase cause problems that
users aren't capable of solving.

I also don't know anything at all about yum-presto which is near the top
of the recommendations (I only breezed the fedoraguide.info page) and I
also wonder if that is useful and doubt its necessity.

You might try disabling protectbase to get the above installed because I
think with just those repositories, protectbase isn't needed. If you add
a repository with clashes (i.e. atrpms), then perhaps protectbase or
maybe even the priorities plugin would be useful but again, these
plugins can make updating a problem without much explanation.
