    To install multimedia codecs, go to easyurpmi and follow the instructions to setup the various main, contrib, plf and updates repos for your version of Mandriva. You would then need to use the software installer to search for libdvdcss, gstreamer bad and gstreamer ugly as well as packages like xine win32.

    For the login sound, what desktop environment are you using?

    I recommand you to turn off the Pulse Audio in MCC. This audio server is the worst thing that happened to Mandriva. Somehow the xine engine (which is the engine for Amarok too) just don't want to cooperate on some architectures with the pulse-audio.
    Another idea, maybe before you turn off the PulseAudio is to install the xine-pulse package. That's the last chance I would give to PA. After that, I would turn it off.
    For the videos: If you're using Xine, you'll need to adjust the audio server to ALSA. It can be done via Settings.
    If you need a CD/DVD catalogizer, give a try to my program:
