I would like to thank to James M. Payne for the solution below:


I'm not a member of the list (I just peruse the archives for
information), but I thought I'd answer your question.  If it works for
you, please include this back on the list.

When installing mplayer with yum, disable your livna repo, and use
freshrpms instead.  I couldn't get mplayer to install using livna
either.  Also, if you want the plug-in support for your Web browser
(Mozilla, Firefox, etc.), go to
(I couldn't find it with yum, so I had to get it here).  It was the
only one that I found that accepted the stuff that yum had already
installed for its dependencies.

My mplayer and plugin are working great on FC4.  I can now play wmv,
avi, mov, mpg, etc., in-browser, and stand-alone..

Hope this helps,
