How to download DVD playing software

Well, I got Xandros 4.0 up and running perfectly on another partition, so I decided to take what I'd learned, and go back and try to get Centos up and running.

First, my accomplishments.. I got the MP3 player up and running, Wine is running several different Windows only programs I use w/o issue... Now my problem.

Playing DVD's. I got this to work in Xandross, by just downloading the libdvdcss files, and installing them. In Centos however, it doesn't look like a DVD player was installed, MPlayer, Xine, and Totem(the only ones I know of), are nowhere to be found. I tried to download the RPM for Xine, but it keeps failing due to like 15 dependencies, some of which I couldn't find. Totem and MPlayer had pretty much the same issues.

I've tried YUMming Xine, downloading the RPM's for all 3 of the above programs, etc, with no luck.

When ready do; yum install mplayer xine totem

Remember; CentOS 4 == RHEL 4
