Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

You didn't say what distro you are using, but I have instructions on my guide for Mplayer for red hat 7.3, 8.0, and 9 and mdk 9 also.
the link is in my sig below.
I've tried Mplayer but I still think that Xine ei better I'm running on RH 8.0
Xine errors on libXv.so.1...using Slackware 8 though
I'm running Slackware 8.1 and I'm having the same problem with Xine as k0ljat was. I installed xine-lib-1-rc3.tar.gz, and xine-ui-0.9.22.tar.gz, and when I execute xine it fails with the error message:
xine:error while loading shared libraries: libXv.so.1:cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory. I've spent about 8 hours now searching for a fix to this(well not really I was working on other issues with Slackware) and it's starting to wear me down. I'm unable to find a pack where I can download this one library I need off of. If anyone can point me in the right direction I'd appreciate so much.
