Lightbulb Some answers

Hi,

first RH9 has NO support for MP3 files at all, because of the unclear copyright questions and so on (you can find more about it on redhat.com).

For playing movies I am using Xine Player, which is pretty good for playing almost any movie format:
http://xine.sf.net

For MP3s I am using XMMS, which looks pretty much like WinAmp:
http://www.xmms.org


...hope this helps a bit.


cheers,
A08

You need to get a patch from the XMMS site to play MP3 files.

How are you trying to view the output from your TV tuner card? I use xawtv, and it works pretty well. You should be able to just type it from a command prompt. There's a slightly nicer gui version you can get as well.

I have both xine and MPlayer. For what it's worth, I have a slight preference for xine - it seems less resource intensive. Both are rather rough, though.

It seems like you're trying to play a VCD, just insert your CD and mount it (of course you have to previously have mplayer installed) and type at shell

mplayer -vcd 1

if you want mplayer on redhat do it the easiest way. download
apt from here and install it.

from the command line as root do this:

apt-get update

apt-get install mplayer


this should solve dependencies and it worked flawlessy on redhat 8.
you also dont have to worry about getting the skins, fonts, etc because it does it all unlike urpmi for drake.
