I am using Xine to play my CD's and I am very pleased. I used yum to install 
xine and xine-skins.  It has no hiss plays lots-o-formats (i.e. cd, vcd, dvd, 
etc) and ejects th cd when I want every time.

I think you may need to install mplayer to get it to work properly (I could be 
wrong on this point). Here' what I did to install mplayer (thanks to others 
on the list):

First, as root run this command:
rpm --import http://freshrpms.net/packages/RPM-GPG-KEY.txt

next, as root   edit /etc/yum.repos/d/freshrpms.repo
and add the following:

# repo for Freshrpms
[freshrpms]
name=FreshRPMs
mirrorlist=http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/$releasever/mirrors-freshrpms
enabled=0
gpgcheck=1


Then, as root run: 
yum install mplayer

I did this then I ran :
yum install xine 

and I then ran:
yum install xine-skins


Hope this helps...
