It means you need to download and install mplayer-common first.

try doing them at the same time just put a space between the two packages

rpm -Uvh mplayer-common-1.0pre3-1.i386.rpm mplayer-1.0pre3-1.i386.rpm

edit: also what distro are you using?

check rpmfind.net. When I installed mplayer, it was like 3 lines of rpms all at once. It works pretty nice now tho. I'd recommend the gui. It is nice. To use it just type gmplayer.

After I ran the APT-updates for about 3 hours. I'll c that it grab that file from somewhere and then I tried to install it again wit h the same context and it worked. Except that now it give me an error that my video card don't support video or something. Guess I have to shop for another video card.

Thanks for everyone's help.

Don't buy a new card just yet. Go to the Preferences, the video.Try changing the driver around. I have redhat 9 and I have to use x11. Lemme know if that works.
