So I uninstall and try updating again: it works! But x264 is no longer installed. So I install x264.i386 - only this time its a livna rpm. It installs, but I check mplayer and only 1 option is installed, so no mencoder which is what I need. If I try to install it it says its still missing the shared object library.

Ok, I understand that, but the thing is that the updates just completed are from livna, so that includes mencoder and mplayer. And as I mentioned after uninstalling x264 with yum the livna package was installed for x264 so this should have solved the problem shouldn't it? So when I go checking to see what is installed via cmd yum I should see livna x264 installed shouldn't I? So why do I see the freshrpms one instead? Especially seeing as I uninstalled it!
I'll keep working on it - your info will help with this - and I'll post back a solution when I work it out.
