    Video and Audio in Linux


    Hi Guys,

    I just installed Fedora Core 5 on my HP Compaq Laptop.The only video player installed by default is Totem.After installation I tried playing a VCD but it didnt work, i then ran the command online

    yum update totem

    it now updated totem. but i still get the error.

    **player cant read from resource**

    how do i go about this. am i to install codecs.if that, where do i find them.how do i install them.

    Are there other players i can install. with support for most file formats

    what about audio players that support most popular extensions
