i'm having Red Hat Linux 9.0. as it doesn't come with any movie player. i've downloaded mplayer from www.freshrpms.net. but on installing it is giving following errors that so many packages are not installed.
1. whether i've to download all of them separately from the above site or there is some other method?
2. if they are needed by MPLAYER then why they are not included in the mplayer rpm package itself?
and
3. if i install XINE then so many packages are needed or not?

here is my output after installing MPLAYER package as root :-

[[email protected] root]# rpm -i mplayer-1.0-0.1.20031002.fr.i386.rpm

1) Download them seperately
2) Because they aren't part of the mplayer software package, mplayer simply depends on them*
3) See above

4)Build Mplayer from source instead of installing from rpm.

*Many open source projects rely on third party libraries to support their operation, Mplayer is no exception, they aren't included because the group that develops Mplayer didn't write the libraries, they simply coded against them to add additional functionally to their software.
