You can use Mplayer, Xine, or Ogle. I've recently put Mplayer on FC6 from 
freshrpms, and it works ok with my Rage 128 card, using the r128 driver.


Info is on the site for setting up the repo with yum. I use apt so my URL is 
no use to you.

You can also get Mplayer from the Livna repo.


For mplayer you also need to install the codecs. I'm not in FC6 at the mo, but 
look on yumex for something like w32codecs.

if you want to try Xine, or Ogle, you need to also install libdvdcss, which 
allow them to decrypt encrypted dvd's. Mplayer doesn't need it, as it's 
already in the package.

You may have to mess about with video settings to get them to play your dvd's, 
and make sure that the correct path to your dvd device is showing.

All the best.
