MPEG player Linux Redhat 8


I would like to know if there is an EASY or at least consistent way to install a MPEG player for Linux? I tried mplayer but get all these invalid key messages, do not know where to download the right rpm's.

xine is also nice because it has the ability to play DVDs and DVD images/file structures, including menus, 5.1 sound, and everything.
