Failed dependencies, can't seem to find the right one (mplayer, fc2).


I want to install mplayer but I'm getting failed dependencies, I fixed them all except one and I can't seem to fix it.

Here I got two dependencies left..
Code:
[root@localhost rpm]# rpm -ihv mplayer-1.0-33_pre4.rhfc2.at.i386.rpm 
warning: mplayer-1.0-33_pre4.rhfc2.at.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 66534c2b
error: Failed dependencies:
        libXvMCNVIDIA_dynamic.so.1 is needed by mplayer-1.0-33_pre4.rhfc2.at
        libXvMCNVIDIA_dynamic.so.1(XVMCNVIDIA) is needed by mplayer-1.0-33_pre4.rhfc2.at
So I install 'nvidia-graphics6106-libs-1.0_6106-59.rhfc2.at.i386.rpm' which contains 'libXvMCNVIDIA_dynamic.so.1'.

Now let's try again..
Code:
[root@localhost rpm]# rpm -ihv mplayer-1.0-33_pre4.rhfc2.at.i386.rpm 
warning: mplayer-1.0-33_pre4.rhfc2.at.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 66534c2b
error: Failed dependencies:
        libXvMCNVIDIA_dynamic.so.1(XVMCNVIDIA) is needed by mplayer-1.0-33_pre4.rhfc2.at
Now that dependence has the same name except it has '(XVMCNVIDIA)' at the end, what package do I need so I can get that???

that is odd actually, if you really do physically know you have that library file on your system, then youn should be fine to force the installation. compiling mplayer from source is often a much easier way to get it installed, than having to satisfy the 1001 deps it cna have depending on the build you found.
