Question Can't find a MPEG/AVI player


hey. i've only had linux for a couple of days now and i've been reading every bit of documentation i can find for it(i even bought the Red Hat Linux 9 Bible and im on page 161). what i can't find though is a MPEG/AVI player for RH9. I've looked all over the net for one and i've tried the real one player but it wouldn't work. so will someone either give me a site where i can download one or tell me how to install the real one player. thank you all in advance.

Before anybody else tries to poison your mind I'm going to tell you what the best one is: mplayer

You will love it!

Yes. I wouldn't recommend it if it wouldn't. I use it myself and I run RedHat 9.
