Hi,

These are probably part of RH:

- mplayer (video, mp3 etc etc) Download here
- cdrecord / xcdroast Download cdrecord - xcdroast

There are a lot more players/burners out there. If you want to burn dvd's as well, take a look at k3b (kde burning tool).

Hope this helps.

Hi,

Get mad about the whole patent issue that's going on, sign every petition there's is against this nonsense.........

Ok, that said: Try downloading mplayer from the official site (try an older version if mp3 is taken out).

You can get working third party packages for Redhat from freshrpms. Download apt and synaptic for your distro and then use them to install or remove packages. The Redhat 9 packages are no longer maintained because its now a discontinued/legacy distro.
