Hello All,

I am running CentOS and would like to install MPlayer as my video player.  Can someone provide a "How To" link to get this done.

    Assuming CentOS5 32-bit:

    cd /usr/src
    rpm -Uvh rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm
    yum install mplayer

    just for clarification, for 64bit you will probably have to run it like this:
    yum --disablerepo='epel' install mplayer
