MPlayer has been unable to load the codec needed. You have already been given advise about this, vis:

... did you read the realvideo section of the mplayer DOCS?
... did you check where drvc.so is?

It's present in /etc/win32/drc.so....

I was also informed by selinux..that....this thing is blocked....i'll paste the result of the next time.....
Thanking you....

Try putting drc.so in /usr/lib/codecs

In fact I don't think you should have any codecs in /etc/...

Code:
simon@indigo-prime:~$ locate win32
/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/dl/win32.rb
/usr/lib/win32
/usr/include/SDL/SDL_config_win32.h
Yep... should not be under /etc ... how did you install the win32 codecs?

Check that you have /usr/lib/win32 directory... if not, then move the /etc one to this location. If something needs codecs in /etc/win32, you can create a link.

Wink why don't you download and install Real Player ?

why don't you download and install REalPlayer ?

It's free,i use it in Fedora to play mp3 and REal Videos alongside with Mplayer ,Kaffeine and Vlc and by this way i've never,never,never experienced any sound or video codecs problems and i've never spent hours in resolving them.

RealPlayer is not free.
http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.html
http://www.itworld.com/AppDev/350/LWD010523vcontrol4/

Besides, why install additional, proprietary, redundant, software to perform a task that is already covered with an existing application? Add to this that, since a codec that RealPlayer needs is misplaced, Realplayer (linux version) can reasonably be expected to have the same problem.

Installing Realplayer is unlikely to solve OPs problem, but will certainly make matters worse.

Wherever we can, we should be using free formats anyway.

Yeah...I am sorry...
The codecs are in :- /usr/lib/win32.....

Code:
Summary
    SELinux is preventing kaffeine from loading /usr/lib/win32/drv3.so.6.0 which
    requires text relocation.

Detailed Description
    The kaffeine application attempted to load /usr/lib/win32/drv3.so.6.0 which
    requires text relocation.  This is a potential security problem. Most
    libraries do not need this permission. Libraries are sometimes coded
    incorrectly and request this permission.  The
    http://people.redhat.com/drepper/selinux-mem.html web page explains how to
    remove this requirement.  You can configure SELinux temporarily to allow
    /usr/lib/win32/drv3.so.6.0 to use relocation as a workaround, until the
    library is fixed. Please file a
    http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi against this package.

Allowing Access
    If you trust /usr/lib/win32/drv3.so.6.0 to run correctly, you can change the
    file context to textrel_shlib_t. "chcon -t textrel_shlib_t
    /usr/lib/win32/drv3.so.6.0" You must also change the default file context
    files on the system in order to preserve them even on a full relabel.
    "semanage fcontext -a -t textrel_shlib_t /usr/lib/win32/drv3.so.6.0"

    The following command will allow this access:
    chcon -t textrel_shlib_t /usr/lib/win32/drv3.so.6.0

The installer did not set up SELinux contexts for you. Possibly associated with real-media DRM.
Follow the instructions under "Allowing Access" or disable SELinux.

It is unlikely that you will actually need the high security given by selinux. But you now need to be aware, in the back of your mind, that you no longer have it. Some applications may have been written (or be written) which assume selinux is running, and are not as secure as they could be as a result.

There is still very little that can happen to you if you keep everything else buttoned up.

Angry i`m going to leave linux.....

i've wasted my valuable time to play mp3 in fedora 10.. look i`m very interested in using linux os.. but it is making me to leave the linux.. because i downloaded all the rpms and tars and done what they said.. but still it is not playing... what i do? pls give me a clear step by step installation process of any mp3 player.. i've tried kaffine,xine,amrok,mplayer.. from the net i got the idea that some players are looking /usr/lib/codecs and some others are /usr/lib/win32.. so i copied the codecs to these directories... but result is same.. i expect a nice solution for my problem.. thanx in advance....

For enabling restricted media playback in fedora 10, see
http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mj...a-f10.html#mp3

... pick a media player (the different players are just front-ends for a related set af systems, so it matters very little what you choose.) Recommend you use Rhythmbox for Gnome or Amarok for KDE. Enabling the restricted codecs is a matter of entering a single line in a terminal.

Also see:

Or, indeed, at all ... mp3 is a nasty nasty codec. Presumably you have some reason for not converting to a free codec?

Good luck.
If you are seriously interested in getting this going, then we can help.
If you want to give up your freedoms in return for an audio codec, then I can only say "please value your freedom more highly".

... it sounds like you are using the Windows methodology to install software ... this is where you need a feature, search the web for the feature, download a third party program and follow the install instructions.

This is a common misconception. Fedora uses repositories as the primary means to manage software. You install capabilities by connecting to a supporting repository with the yum tool.
