    Did you check that Realplayer has dependincies problems with (its either Xine or Totem) and to fix that you are supposed to move either plugins to another directory. Thats what happens when two completley programs try to borrow plugins. (PS) use the mv command

    Trying to get RealPayer on the internet to play, On desktop I would like MPlayer to to my DVD video's. Also I Like QuickTime player. I must say I don't care about Totem, I comes on by default.

    RealPlayer: Get rid of Heilix player (uninstall it)
    Quicktime: Use the crossover office application.
    or use this

    Install MPlayer Media Player
    At some point you're probably going to want to play a QuickTime, AVI or ASF file so you'll want the MPlayer media player. Fortunately with the FreshRpms repositories it's also very easy to download and install. Once again there are conflicts between the Livna and FreshRpms repositories and you'll have to disable one of them.

    # yum -y --disablerepo=livna install mplayer mplayer-skins mplayer-fonts
    # yum -y install mplayerplug-in

    To prevent potential problems of updates in the Livna repository from messing up the mplayer packages add the following line highligted in bold to the file /etc/yum.repos.d/livna.repo :



    This command line will download the whole kit and kaboodle. that if you want to play content from a command line that you use the gmplayer version which will include a skin-able control panel. This will install the plug-in to play a wide variety of media within your browser window. Restart your web browser after that whole mess is done installing and you'll also have a plug-in for Mozilla so you can play embedded content. While you're at it be sure to configure mplayer to use the ALSA sound system rather than the default. It just works better. Edit the file ~/.mplayer/config and add the following line:


    And finally you'll probably also want some additional codecs to play all that proprietary video that seems to have infected the Internet. Go to the MPlayer Download page and download the essential codes package. You'll need to install those files in /usr/local/lib/win32. Here are the steps. Remember the exact file names may change at some point.

    # gtar xjvf essential-20050412.tar.bz2
    # mkdir /usr/local/lib/win32
    # mv essential-20050412/* /usr/local/lib/win32
