    there should be mplayer and xine rpms given in your distro cds. Otherwise you can download them from and .
    these two are the best choices when it comes to watching videos in Linux. You may also use Videolan or vlc.

    Make sure to setup URPMI using the instructions here:
    After that, you have to install libdvdcss. You should be able to use this command, if you've setup URPMI correctly

    urpmi libdvdcss
    Good Luck!
