Rpm.livna.org contains a repository of things that have some
risk of violating patents in the US.  If you follow the instructions
at: http://rpm.livna.org/configuration.html
you can use yum to install your choice of xine, mplayer, totem
or videolan-client (for FC1/2).  Only xine seems to be done
for FC3 (and xmms-mp3).
