Won't you need to run:
make
make install

Check the install instructions first - usually a file named "INSTALL" in the directory you exctracted to.

Edited: like acid_kewpie said "make" not "male" (I don't want anyone thinking I'm sexist )

make install even

but you don't really need that package at all anyway. if you use a deceny player like http://mplayerhq.hu then it's all built in.

ANd it seems that I am installing the codec only for linux. Version 5.0.1. now do I need to download a player as well to go with this, because the player version for windows is like 2.1. But I cannot locat a player for linux anywhere.

Thanks,

use a decent video output like i said. if you compiled it from course you'll need to install the X devel libraries. but then you've provied no info about this...

Im not sure what X devel is, this is my first time installing linux. I tried all the -vo outputs, but none were sucessful. It echos alot about not being able to find certain fdirectories, and I am wondering where would be the best place to isntall this software?

Thanks,
Digsby

i don't think you have installed it to that directory at all. what distro are you on? what file have you installed? you need to provide a lot more information, we'e not psychic

where you downloaded it to is not where you installed it to.. rpm yes? installhttp://fr2.rpmfind.net//linux/RPM/redhat/8.0/i386/XFree86-devel-4.2.0-72.i386.html or the equivalent from your distro cd's IF you are compiling mplayer from source, which you still haven't said about
