Yup... everyone is getting hit. I feel your pain. I had to install gnome and kde completely while 'yum update' merrily announced that all was good.

You can find out how if you goggle search mplayer and goto their site. I installed their latest rpm, then downloaded the complete codex package and followed the instructions to install them. Next, I dnloaded some fonts and followed their install instructions, to the tee. It works better than it did with FC4.

Sometimes the FC team has a very full plate, like right now. So, I just grab the latest and install it and then sit back to actually enjoy using it. At some point, it'll get included in extras and yum will update it.
