I rebuilt my entire site from scratch and need to redirect all the old URL's to new ones. Unfortunately they are all over the place so the solution seems to use mod_rewrite with .htaccess.  I know it can be done but I am having trouble getting the syntax to work. 500 points if you help me.

Here are some URL's I need to redirect. For each number there are usually 50 corresponding numbers.
so for the first one feedid=6 there is also a feedid=1, feedid=2, feedid=3 all the way to 50 or so.

Podcast feeds
from
http://www.domain.com/index.php?module=CTV&action=viewRss&feedid=6
to
http://www.domain.com/podcasts/rss/podcast/6

Podcast subscribe page
from
http://www.domain.com/index.php?module=CTV&action=subscribe&id=7
to
http://www.domain.com/podcasts/details/7

Channel feeds
from
http://www.domain.com/index.php?module=CTV&action=channel&cid=11
to
http://www.domain.com/channels/details/video/11

External channel feeds
from
http://www.domain.com/index.php?module=ctv&action=mediaCenter&cid=21
to
http://www.domain.com/channels/details/video/21

Specific Random URL to change
from
http://www.domain.com/index.php?module=CTV&action=mediaCenterPlayer&id=2138
to
http://www.domain.com/channels/details/video/21

Here is my existing .htaccess and it is working well.

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
   RewriteEngine on
   RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI}  !(^/crossdomain.xml)
   RewriteRule    ^$ app/webroot/    [L]
   RewriteRule    (.*) app/webroot/$1 [L]
   rewritecond %{http_host} ^domain.com [nc]
   rewriterule ^(.*)$ http://www.domain.com/$1 [r=301,nc]
   AddType application/x-javascript .js
   AddType      text/css .css
</IfModule>

I am using apache 2.2.3 on Centos 5
Please be specific and you get 500 points!

The last one from your 2nd post is the same original url like the 4th one. May be you ment mediaCenterPlayer? If you'd like to exclude /crossdomain.xml, you've to do that for your 2nd rule, because the 1st one will never match a request like /crossdomain.xml.
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^module=CTV&action=viewRss&feedid=([0-9]+) [NC]
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ /podcasts/rss/podcast/%1? [R=301,L]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^module=CTV&action=subscribe&id=([0-9]+) [NC]
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ /podcasts/details/%1? [R=301,L]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^module=CTV&action=(?:mediaCenter|channel)&cid=([0-9]+) [NC]
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ /channels/details/video/%1? [R=301,L]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^module=CTV&action=mediaCenterPlayer&id=([0-9]+) [NC]
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ /channels/details/video/%1/mediapage? [R=301,L]
rewritecond %{http_host} ^domain.com [nc]
rewriterule ^(.*)$ http://www.domain.com/$1 [r=301,nc]
RewriteRule    ^$ app/webroot/    [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI}  !=/crossdomain.xml
RewriteRule    (.*) app/webroot/$1 [L]
 
AddType application/x-javascript .js
AddType      text/css .css
