it's much much easier to go from source, as from source missing deps will simply affect the functionality of mplayer, but it will not install at all without rpm deps being satifsfied... but certainly there are rpms about...

I havn't done source yet.......My machine purrs,. You can do RPM's with console, or just click on them and type your su password and it's done. Or you can right click on the rpm and click install this package, then you type in the su password and it's done. I have never had any issues with miissing or not running properly. If there is missing files I write them down and install them.

Why not try "apt", if you have this install or "yum":

Do this in the command line argument:
apt-update #<-----------update your archieves
apt-cache search mplayer. #<-----------check if mplayer exists
if it has, do:
apt-get install mplayer. #finally, install it

It will check for dependencies as well.. So easy and efficient but takes some bandwith.

for yum not to sure:
yum --help

check available options and do what you want with it.
