Players

I'm uncertain of what choice i could make on installing a player to read video files like quicktime files, wmv files and all the rest of it. Since Fedora comes with Totem which is very limited i'm searching for a player that could do the job.
If we take a look at what we see in the forum there is a lot of advice on installing many of them but if a choice is made what about the ones that we don't use like Totem. If i remove it what will happen with my OS by doing this will it be deficient after that.

Mplayer covers a lot of files but there is so many choices.

I hope that i've made it clear

Thank you

You should remove the version of totem you have and install a better version that plays dvds and supports a lot of video formats.

su
echo -e "remove totem\n install totem-xine libdvdcss libdvdnav\n run\n quit" | yum -y shell

that should do the trick

Thanks jim for that. Will try.

It works for divx/xvid, mp3, quicktime, wmv straight after the install.

yum install -y vlc

VLC sounds good, but I get 'no match' for it running yum. I'm running FC6

http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-6.rpm

Download and install this. Then run the yum command.
This gives you a wider choice of apps to install under yum.
