Find the Correct installation Procedure

Step by step guide to run xine


You need to download the xine engine (libxine). Get the libxine rpm which more closely matches yourCPU:

libxine1-(version)-xxxxxx.i586.rpm for Pentium/Pentium MMX
libxine1-(version)-xxxxxx.i686.rpm for Pentium II/III/IV
libxine1-(version)-xxxxxx.k6.rpm for AMD K6
libxine1-(version)-xxxxxx.k7.rpm for AMD Athlon/Duron

If you don't know your CPU just get the i586 package.

Download xine-ui:
xine-ui-(version)-xxxxxx.i586.rpm for any CPU.

Install the packages (you need to be root):

# rpm -U libxine1* xine-ui*


If you want full DVD support download and install libdvdcss:

By default, xine expects to find your DVD-ROM at /dev/dvd. Creating a symbolic link to your device is recommended (for example, /dev/hdc or /dev/scd0). The command below should work for most users:

# ln -s /dev/cdrom /dev/dvd

Make sure the DMA is enabled for your DVD-ROM, otherwise playback will be 'jumpy'.

# hdparm -d1 /dev/cdrom


If you want full Windows Media Video and Quicktime support download and install:



If you want full Real Media support download and install:
RealPlayer9- newest version
(alternative rpm for fedora core: RealPlayer9-, or
RealPlayer8- older version (if you have problems instaling RealPlayer9)
obs: Depending on your distro, you might need /usr/sbin/update-alternatives or

Type 'xine' at your console window and enjoy...

Hint: consider reading the xine FAQ.

To try an experimental Netscape/Mozilla plugin using xine to play embedded videos, download and install:
xine-mozilla-plugin-(version)-xxxxxx.i586.rpm xine plugin for Netscape/Mozilla.

This plugin was not officialy released, it might hang/crash/freeze/burn. in case of trouble just uninstall.

So dont worry be happy
