I can understand the LTS support complaints, but CentOS, Scientific and others address this, but as far as the codecs part.  There is a CD out there with everything prepackaged and Fedora based:

It is installable and has the packages(which are easily installed otherwise by the way) that the users in this thread are asking for.  I wonder sometimes if people know about this, it seems that they don't know about it.  I hope that the work of several people who have taken the time to work on such projects get the notice that they deserver :)
