Why is Mplayer and Xine the only working Video Players?

Posted 10-02-2007 at 03:07 PM by Chargh

I have had lots of troubles getting good video players for Linux. The one Fedora comes with Totem, works great at playing Ogg Vorbis Video, but all other file types it cant play. Then I tried Helix Player, but I could not get it to play anything.

Then I got Yum to use the Livna RPM Repository, and got Mplayer. It has a little bit of an odd interface, but it plays Video fine. Then I also got Xine, and It plays Videos fine also. What is with the Players in the Fedora Repository not playing lots of Video types?
