Just install the RPMs. You can get them at mplayers site. You don't have to install from source if you don't want to.

Do you have a specific question?

When i try installing the RPM's for version .90-1 of mplayer , it comes up with an error that says
The Following package could not be found on your system.
installation cannot continue until it is installed.
mplayer = 0.90 mplayer-common


What should i do, thats the package I'm trying to install isnt it?

no, mplayer isn't mplayer-common - they have different names. only ever install rpms from the mplayerhq.hu homepage.

We don't know, we can't see your system If it's asking for it though, most likely that is not the same package. There are several that are needed (or requested) to be installed, you can install all of them at the same time to satisfy the dependancies of each other (looping dependancies).

Cool

You could try different vo options:
mplayer -vo help
Should show you:
x11
So try:
mplayer -vo x11 /path/to/movie.avi

Also, there are threads on enabling xv, do a search around a bit acid_kewpie is the expert on that.

Cool

Yes there is, but you usually need to compile from source to do that (run a search on this site for gmplayer there are loads of threads for ya).
