Does anyone know of any good movie program?

Thanks!

I have another word for you...

XINE =o)

I think MPlayer is the best but I have a lot of speed issues with it so I use this. If you're wanting to broadcast accross a network though you can't beat VLC..

Xine - xine.sourceforge.net
VLC - www.videolan.org/vlc

...and if it's DVDs you're wanting to watch then you want Ogle...

MPlayer.

Don't get RPM. Get tar ball. It will install without a single problem in Redhat 9.

./configure --enable-gui (to be able to use GUI)

don't click on anything, install it from a console screen. there's a really easy to follow guide for installing from source at the top of the "Linux - General" forum
