Unhappy My CentOS5 can't play audios and videos


I'm a new user of Linux.I have installed CentOS5 for php/mysql programming. the audio and video softwares in CentOS attracted me, so i tried to play some songs in "totem".But it shows an error message that, to install plugins inorder to play the file.from where i can download those plugins? Is it possible to create a dial-up connection in CentOS?if yes, kindly provide the information to set up the connection.

you might want to read the Cent wiki
http://wiki.centos.org/FrontPage
http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources
http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories

you also might want to look into installing VLC and mplayer ( video - mostly )
and "Rhythmbox Music Player" for music and ipod
