    ------------------------------------------

    This proved the easiest method for me:

    [1] Go to http://greysector.rangers.eu.org/mpl...-optional.html and download the following three RPMs:
    - mplayer-gui
    - mplayer-codecs-essential
    - mplayer-skin-default

    [2] Place them in their own directory (eg. "mplayer")

    [3] cd to that directory and enter this command:
    # rpm -Uvh *.rpm

    [4] This will install all three packages (mplayer with all the essential codecs and the default skin)

    ENJOY!

    yum install mplayer

    YUM - good idea

    why i used yum for some cd burning software and then used rpm for mplayer instead of yum i don't knowjavascript:emoticon('')

    I guess we could say that if yum doesn't work and you don't want to fiind out why it failed, you could use my method javascript:emoticon('')
