Video Players help


I have Real Player 8 which works ok. But I need a player for KDE to play avi, mpg, and divx. I can not find Xine on my computer. I can not get avifile or mpg to install. I just want to play some old Simpsons episodes. I do not have a DVD player either. I am using Red Hat 8.0

http://mplayerhq.hu for THE best player (in terms of ability and stability)

BUT if for some reason you want nasty nasty Xine http://xinehq.de

please search this site for a LOT of opinions and information about both programs and media playback in general
