That's way too complicated.  Undo whatever mess you have,
execute the one-line instruction near the top of:


 yum install xine mplayer totem vlc
then use whichever you like.

Just to be sure, don't you want to use totem-xine?  AFAICT, using
totem will install the stock totem player from core and not the one
built by livna.  Maybe for DVD's it doesn't matter, but to play files
using the win32 codecs I thought I needed to use the xine backend for
totem (or the gstreamer-pitfdll plugin, which I use on FC4 but haven't
tried yet in FC5).

I'd be happy to find I don't need totem-xine, as it crashes for me at
nearly every exit on FC5.

I agree with you. I got all that codex stuff and put it in /usr/lib/win98/ and that was supposed to work. It doesn't on FC4 I KNOW it's the stuff they put in the DVD to make it hard to copy that is causing the problem because I have a DVD that is a policical add MPlayer plays that just fine.

   It seems that no-one knows how to get around this problem.
