ensure that you have drm (direct rendering) enabled for your video card.

as for movies check out xine and / or mplayer

What graphics card are you using?
You must make sure that you have set up 3d-acceleration correctly..
This is mainly done in the file /etc/X11/XF86config
(There are also some graphical tools that are supposed to help you making changes to your configuration - you may try these as well)

i don't know how to check DRM if any body can tell i shall be very thankful to that person

after you've started X windows type in a terminal
'glxinfo | grep -i direct'

if it comes back with
Direct Rendering: yes

then you're fine else you'll have to fiddle with it.

For most movies you need /usr/lib/win32 - I don't think that comes with a default RH installation - check at and download the win32 codecs.
