If you are using Centos5/K12LTSP, or FC# with ltsp, you will need to go
to your yum.repos.d directory and enable( change from the default =0,
>=1) the livna repository. Mplayer will work for mp4's,,, but I've found
the most streamlined/all in one solution is to install totem-xine. It'll
play about any format of audio/video you throw at
it(RealPlayer,Quicktime,wmv,asf,mp#,flac,ogg,etc) providing you get all
the right dependencies installed .Totem-xine has a nice look plugin for
FF as well.

Take Care,
