"xmms works for me.
I add Dag Wieers rpmforge repository with:
rpm -Uhv http://apt.sw.be/packages/rpmforge-r...l5.rf.i386.rpm
yum install xmms xmms-skins xmms-mp3
There was a problem in that the doublesize option didn't work correctly but this has been fixed with the latest update (1:1.2.10-14.el5.rf).
To enable mp3 in totem and rhythmbox (and for Sound Juicer CD ripping to mp3) you can do:
yum -y install gstreamer-plugins-bad
yum -y install gstreamer-plugins-ugly
These also come from rpmforge."

7.2.1 MPlayer (possible replacement for totem)
Click to enlarge
MPlayer is a video player with many features - supporting nearly every known video format, e.g. MPEG/VOB, AVI, Ogg/OGM, VIVO, ASF/WMA/WMV, QT/MOV/MP4, RealMedia, Matroska, NUT, NuppelVideo, FLI, YUV4MPEG, FILM, RoQ and PVA (the codecs from step 7.1.6 are needed to support some of the listed formats).
If you want to use the mplayer, deinstall the following package...
...and install these packages:
7.2.2 Xmms (possible replacement for rhythmbox)
Xmms is a lean audio-player.
If you want to use xmms, deinstall the following package...

I have used a lot of video players on Linux - and over the time my favorite video player have changed. When I wrote the post Top 5 Video Players in Linux, it was VLC. After that, the position was held by Xine for a long time. But that was before I discovered SMPlayer.
SMPlayer is a front-end for MPlayer, from basic features like playing videos, DVDs, and VCDs to more advanced features like support for MPlayer filters and more.
Remembers the settings of all files you play
So you start to watch a movie but you have to leave… don’t worry, when you open that movie again it will resume at the same point you left it, and with the same settings: audio track, subtitles, volume…
This is one feature I absolutely must have in a video player - I want to use very specific settings. And SMPlayer is one of the few players that lets me do that.
You can choose font and size, and even colors for the subtitles. Or you can drag and drop a subtitle file into the player when you are playing a video - the video will use that subtitle file from then on. Or you can automatically get the subtitle of the currently playing film from OpenSubtitles with the click of a button(you need the latest version for this).
Audio track switching.
You can choose the audio track you want to listen. Works with avi and mkv. And of course with DVDs.
Seeking by mouse wheel.
You can use your mouse wheel to go forward or backward in the video.
Allows you to adjust the brightness, contrast, hue, saturation and gamma of the video image. I have never used this feature - but it might come in handy for a bad quality video.
Multiple speed playback
You can play at 2X, 4X… and even in slow motion. SMPlayer speeds up the audio as well - which is kinda distracting - I wish they would mute it in fast mode.
Several filters are available: deinterlace, postprocessing, denoise… and even a karaoke filter (voice removal).
Audio and subtitles delay adjustment
Allows you to sync audio and subtitles.
Such as selecting a demuxer or video & audio codecs, providing mplayer command line options and more. Seriously, take a look at the Preferences dialog of this app.
Allows you to enqueue several files to be played one after each other. Autorepeat and shuffle supported too.
Binaries available for Windows and Linux.
SMPlayer is under the GPL license.
In Fedora/Red Hat system, you can install SMPlayer using yum…
yum install smplayer
18. There is no mp3 support in CentOS! Or is there? How about other multimedia formats?
Yes. There is no mp3 support in CentOS, as there is no mp3 support in the distributions from upstream. It's not included because of legal (patent) issues. You either can encode your music files to ogg vorbis, which is supported in CentOS or install mp3 support from a third party repository, namely rpmforge. For example: If you want mp3 support for xmms, then install xmms-mp3 from that repository.
The same is true for several other multimedia formats (codecs, for example gstreamer plugins) and multimedia players like xine or mplayer. These aren't packaged with CentOS because of legal issues, but you may find those in the rpmforge repository.
