    What do you mean with "won't burn"? What happens?

    In that case you're most likely trying to burn a VCD. You have to create an ISO9660 filesystem to burn an AVI file. I'm guessing that is what k3b calls a data CD.

    MPlayer is mainly a command line player. Later versions do have a GUI, but I don't know what needs to be done to use it (and I haven't really cared, either). Try running gmplayer and see if you get the GUI version.
    Otherwise, just use it as the command line player that it is. Run mplayer with the filename as its argument.
