    You may want to update your urpmi database
    I got the similar error for mplayer.

    Any thought?

    Try doing
    Code:
    #urpmi.update -a
    #urpmi vlc mplayer
    If you keep having problems, try using different mirrors for the PLF repos. To do this you would have to do something like
    Code:
    #urpmi.removemedia plf-free plf-nonfree
    After that go to the easyurpmi site and setup new mirrors.

    select atleast main,contrib, plf-free and plf-nonfree.

    you can also use backsport but they are not fully stable and could result in stability problems

    You can find most of the packages by selecting main,contrib, plf-free and plf-nonfree.

    for mplayer gui version and plugins you need to do this

    Code:
    urpmi mplayer-gui mplayer-skins mplayer-fonts mplayerplugin

    Including the updates repo to the list of repos mentioned above would be good.

    Thanks guys. It works now. I just mentioned another location for easy urpmi...and it started working.

    Another question:

    If I want to make VLC as my default player. How can I do that. I am coming from windows , so i knew how to make VLC my default player. In linux it ask me to select my player to play a song but I dont know where to go and look for it. I am very new to linux, can you guys help me out?

    Also, while listening music/videos online ...some sites just play the video on their webpage using windows media player in windows. Can we do the same thing in linux?

    Thanks.
