FUD? why would I care whether someone uses mplayer or not?
I'm merely expressing my opinion.

maybe I should've mentioned I did this on CentOS.

CentOS uses rpmforge to install mplayer.

--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Missing Dependency: mplayer = 1.0-0.101.20080903svn.el5.1 is
needed by package mplayer-gui
Error: Missing Dependency: libdvdread.so.4 is needed by package mplayer-gui
Error: Missing Dependency: libdvdnavmini.so.4 is needed by package mplayer-gui

but i have mplayer installed, just not the matching version required by the gui.
$ rpm -qa | grep mplayer
mplayer-fonts-1.1-3.0.rf.noarch
mplayer-1.0-0.40.rc1try2.el5.rf.i386
