Don't know about FC but in Debian (which also came with Totem) I had to install the appropriate codecs separately before it would play commercial films. There should be something in FC help about it (Debian info wouldn't help you here).

There are others as you say, but when you get it working Totem is the best IMO.

I got them from ftp://ftp.nerim.net

But as I said I don't think this helps you.

I have just read that totem is broken in FC5. Bugger! Can anyone confirm this?

If you want to use Xine do:

yum install xine xine-lib libdvdcss

This should install xine along with the necessary codecs.

tldp.org while I was googling about totem codecs for FC5

Don't shoot me, I didn't write it. I'm just glad for FC5 users that it isn't true!

About your link shrikant, am I being stupid here? The reference to DVD players on that page says:

Quote:
....This will install the xine DVD/VCD/CD player. Now to get xine to automatically play a DVD upon insertion instead of the Totem player which can't actually play DVDs, go to the System -> Preferences -> Removable Drives and Media.....
Where on this page is the link to the libdvdcss codecs to get totem working?
