which RH9 prgrms are good for audio & video


New to RH. I either have no video player or the one i have plays an extremely limited number of filetypes. I have XMMS for audio but it doesn't play mp3.
What are the best players for audio and video on RH9 and links to good places to download?

you need to download an mp3 rpm so you can play mp3. you can also download Mplayer
go to google and do a search for mplayer.

i see a lot of mplayer download sites, but the number of different packages is really confusing to me. How do I know which to get?

mattuc,

I had the same problem with xmms on Fedora Core 1. All you need to do is copy two files to a folder on your computer. See this thread: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/history/114094

at the bottom of contra's post are the instructions to get it working. I remember that that is what i did to get mp3 songs working (just remember to restart xmms)

I hope this helps!
