Get the files from windows? Are you dual booting? If so you can get the NTFS kernel support rpm and then mount your windows partition and play the files from there.

queensaid, please don't take those last two posts as insults, they're just talking between themselves - no one else pays any attention to them, so i'd advise you not to either! thanks.

You want to check out this for NTFS support.

But hey, don't listen to me. Nobody else does.

you can normally mount an NTFS partition in the same way, but read only access. search this site for details of how to do this if you can't do it yourself.

I use http://mplayerhq.hu for playing most media types, dvd, mp3, divx etc...

I was just jokin around, and following suite of the post above my own

The question had been answered from Fancypiper's link, or a search on the site. So I figured we could have a little fun.

Insults? Nah. Jokes, yeah. A little fun never hurt anyone. And if Queensaid was bothered by it, I'd be the first to appologize, the last thing I wanna do is turn n00bs away (I'd have thought that to be obvious by now Chris with my repetative answering of the same old questions troubling nearly every newcomer).

=====================================================================

Queensaid, mplayer is a great tool for a lot of media in Linux; however I personally don't find it to be the best thing to play mp3's. You might look into:
mp3blaster
winamp
zinf (which is the old freeamp)
or many others available at: www.freshmeat.net (search for mp3 player).

Cool
