I think that you should try to get it from the livna repositories. Finding the livna repositories first and including them in your distribution is a good idea in any event

Maybe try BASH running as root.

Then try

yum install mplayer.

Or try kpackage and type in mplayer from there.

Also try mplayer's website if you haven't done so already. It is here. Many of the older versions work just fine for most types of media files. Obviously, use the rpm files.

Don't forget to issue:

yum install mplayer gui

That way, you'll get an entry in the start menu and a graphical interface.

memcoder and perhaps konvert are also helpful

you DO KNOW that fedora 10 is NO LONGER supported and is PASSED it's End Of Life .
There will be NO MORE updates to it ever .
No security fixes , - no nothing ever.

-- and install a SUPPORTED version of Fedora -- Fedora 12 is the current
