Talking Fedora Core II (KDE) DVD Playing / Burning

Hey :-)

Im finally starting to get to grips with Linux now.

Actually got the nVidia driver installed, and things are looking a lot better on the Desktop front and also on the Gaming speed front (quake now runs at more than 1 fps!)

Anyway, I now have a Pioneer DVD(R) drive, and I want to start watching / recording my own DVD's.

Can someone please recommend (and link to an RPM if poss :-)

A good DVD player

A good DVD Copying program (for non Illigal purpous of course)

A program, that can convert AVI / MPEG to DVD if possible.

And, anything else you guys can recommend!

Cheers in advance

Aha! I have K3B installed, I didnt realise it did DVD as well!

What about burning AVI / MPG to DVD? Any Ideas?
