What about...

There is vlc for RHEL 5.

http://dag.wieers.com/rpm/packages/vlc/

The site also has information on mplayer and it seems that it is also possible to install mplayer.

http://dag.wieers.com/rpm/packages/mplayer/

http://dag.wieers.com/rpm/FAQ.php#B

Also, look at this posting here at LQ for a start. You might also search LQ for more information on playing media in RHEL 5.

VLC Player

Not sure what video format you wnat to play but you could start by trying VLC player. This player supports a lot of video formats.

VLC can be installad from the RPMforge repository.
A way to add this repos is with the following command:

(for i386)
Code:
rpm -Uhv http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/i386/rpmforge/RPMS/rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm
(for x86_64)
Code:
rpm -Uhv http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/x86_64/rpmforge/RPMS//rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el5.rf.x86_64.rpm
after that install VLC
Code:
yum install vlc
Hope this helps.

If you want to stay with a rpm (a very good idea with a rpm based system) you have to fulfill the missing dependencies(install them). The reason adding another repo(rpmforge/dag in this case) is a good idea is that then yum can automatically handle fulfilling those dependencies. If you do not add the repo you will have to manually install each of the missing dependencies (and any dependencies they in turn may have) one after the other.

You can try...

Code:
root@host# yum -y localinstall pakage-1.2.rpm
It will resolve any dependencies for you (NOTE: if the dependencies AREN'T in your repo...you will have to manually download the RPM...in which case you are better off installing the repo for VLC).

While localinstall is a great option I would strongly urge you to never use the -y option. Basically it is like giving somebody a blank check that you have signed. Take the extra minute to review what yum is going to do and then enter yes. While it is relatively rare cross dependency issues do arise.

Edit: For VLC there are addition, non base repo, packages that will need to be installed.
