Try to install the packages "mplayer" or "vlc". Afterwards open a terminal and run "vlc" or "mplayer <filename>" to watch or listen to your files. Mplayer has a ton of options - check them out with "man mplayer". mplayer comes with an encoder called "mencoder" to produce your own *.whatever files or convert existing ones into other formats.

You will need some repository like freshrpms [1] for that as RHEL4 does not include these packages in Red Hat Network because they are not open source.
