Look to for the fedora instal notes (from FC4 to current)

If you install yum extender and the livna repository, you can browse the file-lists for the programs you want.

yum install pan
yum install xmoto

you don't actually need mplayer

yum install totem-xine

Totem-xine uses the same engine as mplayer to play proprietary codecs. Mostly usoful for streaming. However, the utility ffmpeg2theora will convert your IP laden formats to the free theora (video) and vorbis (audio).
