what's the best choice for an MPEG player for FC3? my first attempt at using totem caused it to fail to open a standard MPEG file, and poking around in bugzilla and a couple fedora forums suggests that totem is still pretty buggy.
Totem works extremely well for me - you just need the plugins handle mpeg
The totem that comes with Fedora works well, but if installing a newer totem makes you feel better -
I've found that it does error messages a little better, though it doesn't do anything the Fedora version doesn't (that I have found anyway).
If you still don't want to use totem, then xine or mplayer both work well. They can be had from rpm.livna.org
