Problems installing Mplayer and Bittorrent


I am a newbie to Linux. I am using Fedora and I installed Bittorrent somewhere, but I can't seem to find it. I am trying to tell it to use it for a .torrent file. Also, I am having problems installing Mplayer. I installed all of the lib files it asked for, but a file I installed must be to new because it still wants me to install it. I need to find out how I can uninstall it so I can put the right one on. Any ideas? Thanks.

to run Bittorent, just type in "bittorent" and it should run. as for mplayer, please explain in a little more detail.

When I try to install Mplayer it says that there are some packages that are needed. I installed all of those and it is still asking for libpostproc. I have that installed, but Im thinking it is not the right one for the version of Mplayer I am installing. I just need to know how to find that fill so I can delete it and install the new one, if that is possible.

How did you install the library (rpm, from source...)?
