I had a look at the rpm install - grab all the rpms and install with:
rpm -ivh mplayer-package1.rpm package2.rpm, etc - basically install all the base rpms with one long command.

You need the mplayer rpm and the mplayer-common rpm (and I'm working from memory here). So, in a console type:
rpm -ivh mplayer-1.0pre2.i386.rpm mplayer-common-1.0pre2-1.i386.rpm
or whatever the package names are.

This will resolve any dependency problems where 1 mplayer rpm needs another as they install together.

you need two filse there, mplayer-1.0pre2 and mplayer-common-1.0pre2, so install them together and it won't complain

type in either mplayer or gmplayer in a console.

You will also need the codecs rpms (to allow .mov, .ram, etc files to be run) and whatever other font and skins rpms there are.

gmplayer will give you the gui - as long as you have installed fonts and skins.
