Thanks for the reply I have installed mplayer using two rpms from another site but I can only get it to run by typing this in a terminal.

mplayer /home/masaunders/films/2fast_2furious.avi


Is there a gui that I can get is it the one at freshrpms.net

I had just download the three mplayer package from freshrpms.net and it worked great. You should give it a tried. Oh in case you want to watch some stream video with mplayer, you should also download some codec and unzip them to /usr/local/lib/codec.
