MPEG in fedora


I have been fooling with Fedora for about 3 weeks now. I am pretty well satisfied with it except I havn't figured out how to get mpeg files to play. What do others use to play them? I don't need anything extensive, just to view some small files occasionally.

Thanks,
Roy

mpeg files in fedora

Try using xine, or totem media player. Both of which I might add are preinstalled on mandrake 9.2... :-)

Freshrpms.net apt-get

Downloading RPMS by hand is for the birds.
Goto www.freshrpms.net
choose your Redhat flavor
download the apt rpm
su to root
install the apt rpm (rpm -ivh apt*.rpm)
apt is a command line rpm manager

the following apt commands will get you started:

apt-get update (updates the files list, you must do this first)
apt-get install ogle-gui (installs Ogle and the Ogle gui)
apt-get inistall mplayerskins (installs mplayer and the fonts and skins)

Last ... apt-get install synaptic

Synaptic is a GUI for the apt RPM manger (very cool)

This should keep you busy for a day (at least) playing with apt and Synaptic

really, xine and ogle rule. though, it is a matter of personal preference, like kde or gnone. (KDE sucks)

I was told how to get the DVDs in english, so I should try to get that working later.. I am in ogle right now watching frequency..

Then again you are right everything is a matter of personal preference, I love KDE..

apt is one of the greatest things since chocolate milk.. yet better.. just make sure you are in root.. because if you are not it won't work..
