Installing mplayer with Fedora 8 missing dependencies

Using yum to install mplayer on Fedora 8. I setup Livna repo, then using terminal as su typed: yum -y install mplayer mplayer-gui mplayerplug-in mencoder. Got errors... missing dependencies: and I found the first one (libpulse) was already in /user/lib/ but not the second one (libdvdnavmini) Is this an issue of getting the correct versions of everything to work together? is there something else I can use instead of libdvdnavmini? How about getting mplayer to work without it? I don't need the ability to play traditional dvd, just other video formats. By the way is "mplayerplug-in" a typo? I am using the Personal Fedora 8 Installation Guide and that is how they show it.

the new keys have been out long enough that running
yum update

also note that livna is now part of RpmFusion
