    Error when Installing MPlayer on my Red Hat


    Hello members,

    I've been trying to install mplayer on my rhel 6.0 but its giving me the following error:
    Error: The GUI requires libavcodec with PNG support (needs zlib).

    can anyone tells me the exact name of the package that contains libavcodec with PNG support/zlib? I tried {yum install libavcodec} and {yum install zlib} respectively but it returns "no package available, nothing to do".

    Based on a quick google search, ffmpeg provides the lib you are looking for.

    I looked it up on my RHEL5 box (yet to update to 6), I believe it's the same on RHEL6
    Code:
    yum -y install qffmpeg-libs
    If that doesn't work, search for FFmpeg

    Or, you can get the source here:
    Code:
    ffmpeg.org/download.html

    Hello there,

    Thanks for your reply. However {yum -y install gffmpeg-libs} did not work i.e no package available. So i went the refered website and i downloaded the ffmpeg source, which is a tar file. I untared it and have several filed and directories. I read the INSTALL file and it says type {./configure} then {make} then {make install}. But unfortunately when i typed {./configure}. I got the following message:

    [root@wi-tribe ffmpeg-0.7-rc1]# ./configure
    yasm not found, use --disable-yasm for a crippled build

    If you think configure made a mistake, make sure you are using the latest
    version from Git. If the latest version fails, report the problem to the
    ffmpeg-user@ffmpeg.org mailing list or IRC #ffmpeg on irc.freenode.net.
    Include the log file "config.log" produced by configure as this will help
    solving the problem.
    [root@wi-tribe ffmpeg-0.7-rc1]#

    Any idea what exactly should i do? I'm a bit new in linux so bear with me and give me a step by step instruction. Thanks
