    I hear Ogle is very cool. I did a web search. The install option I was trying to think of when compiling from source is:

    --enable-runtime-cpudetection

    Typical of my Linux experience in that it's not a recommended option to use, but it's the one thing that made Mplayer work **at all** on my box.

    This is good for MPlayer tips:

    ARGH!

    I tried to uninstall the bungled install of Mplayer yesterday and now I'm frustrated!!!

    I used the parameter you gave me Chris H and this is what it said
    "blah blah blah.rpm package is not installed"

    So, I tried to install it using the command line parameters:

    "blah blah blah.rpm is already installed"

    WHAT DO I DO!?!?

    I can't uninstall, and I can't reinstall!

    We have a long weekend coming up and I so would like to get this working!

    Thanks :P

    Remember you need to uninstall the package, not the rpm filename. Use rmp -q name* to see if it's already installed.

    Least I hope that's it.

    Else just leave mplayer on there and add xine.

    sorry, I didn't mean mplayer, meant Xine! lol

    Ok, I will try again to uninstall.....

    I think I tried to uninstall via the rpm - not the program...

    Thanks for everyone's help.

    As a true noob, when I started Linux I installed all sorts of trash in all kinds of ways. This invariably messed up my system!

    This weekend just been, I reloaded my system and installed Xine by way of terminal command line - worked perfectly. Now I can watch my video clips etc....thank you very much to all who have helped - particularly Chris H - your advice has been very much appreciated.

    Glad it worked Dyfant!

    When I used RH I always had trouble with the gui rpm system. Much better to use the command line for that methinks.
