Or install Xine. You will need certain codecs as well, depending on the video formats that you want to play.

Mplayer, VLC, Xine, and host of others are all available in the common el5 3rd party repos. Rpmforge, epel, and elrepo are just a few of these. The Centos wiki goes through all of this.

I don't know if you are aware of it, but CentOS is not really a multimedia distribution. It is more server/factory workstation type of operating system. Ubuntu and Fedora (centOS cousin) are better for that kind of jobs.

Today the above statement(Elv13) is pretty much a myth. When Fedora dropped long term support and began only supporting each version for 13 months, a lot of us switched to Centos. As more of us switched repos expanded to add the packages that we were used to seeing in Fedora. While the "core" of the system does lag behind (nature of RHEL/Centos) this does not mean that you cannot use Centos as a direct replace for Fedora. If one can live without the latest and greatest bells and whistles Centos works very well as a direct replacement. Personally I find the tradeoff of being roughly a generation behind Fedora to be well worth the ability not to have to reinstall until 2014.
