Does Fedora come with a DVD player?

I have installed Fedora Core1 - I have a DVD drive and a cd rom drive. The operating system appears to have identified both of these (even though it calls them both CD drives).

When I put a DVD in the DVD drive however, I don't appear to be able to play the DVD - is there an app with Fedora or do I need to go and get one? If so then does anyone have any recommendations (easy to use and easy to install?)

Fedora might come with xine as its popular among distros since its easier to setup but I would recommend mplayer.
