I just installed mplayer-1.0pre3-1.i386. It is AWESOME!!!!!!! Anyone who is using ogle or xine ought to give MPlayer a test drive. It installed easily, there are codecs for virtually any format you need, and playback is smooth and the audio synchronizes exactly with the video (unlike xine). I wanted to give very public Kudos to the kind folks at www.MPlayerHQ.hu
for an exceptional piece of software.
