Red Hat stopped distributing software that uses the MPEG algorithms to prevent possible legal problems over the MPEG patents. You can go over to www.freshrpms.net and download the rpm for `mplayer'. I know it plays mpeg files but haven't tried it with any avi files yet.

Worked better for me than an RPM.
That's just me, though.
