xine, ogle, mplayer all work.

Configure your yum.conf file as posted in various messages (search the archives) and type in yum install (package). Configure your player to find your DVD player and go to town.

I run all three and each has their own benefits and preferences. I normally run from command line so I find I use mplayer more. With xine, you can have a nice graphical interface that looks like a DVD player.

I haven't used Ogle in months.
