I've been struggling finding all the packages I need for an mplayer

I was doing a search and found someone claiming it's as simple as.
yum install mplayer-skins mplayer-fonts mplayer.
Well, that doeesn't work.
Now I'm stuck looking for aalib package.
Any guidance appreciated!
I'm running FC4


Hi Dean;

This question is answered quite well on www.fedorafaq.org

Here is the exact link for FC4 - http://www.fedorafaq.org/fc4/
Here is the link for configuring yum -

Here is the link for installing mplayer -
http://www.fedorafaq.org/fc4/#browsermovies
- don't forget to install the windows media codecs

You have to use the yum setup recommended on www.fedorafaq.org in
order for the following instructions to work:

Q: How can I watch movies in my web browser? (Updated 7 May 2005)
A: Just install the mplayer plug-in:

  1. Make sure that you're using my yum configuration from the
installing software question.
  2. Open a Terminal.
  3. Become root:

     su -
  4. Install the plug-in:

     yum install mplayerplug-in
  5. Close all the windows of your web browser and then open it again.

Now, you can see movies on web sites!

NOTE: If you install a new version of your web browser you may have to
run this process again.

You might also want to install the various Windows movie decoders.
Note that there may be some legal issues with these decoders. You can
install them by:

  1. Make sure that you're using my yum configuration from the
installing software question.
  2. Open a Terminal.
  3. Become root:

     su -
  4. Install the package of decoders:

     yum --enablerepo=atrpms install w32codec

(Thanks to Sindre for writing the original text for this question, and
suggesting the w32codec part.)

I hope this helps.

Sincerely,
Gerald
