    VLC is creating problems (installed it via Yum), for instance when I open MPG, it opens fine but after the first frame it closes abruptly w/o any error. However avi runs perfect. No music though...

    vlc gave me problems to me too in fedora. it had over a hundered dependencies. though i managed to install it, it still was slow. the best thing is to use it via Wine. it doesnt give problems at all.

    ^^ VLC does not work well with FC5. Try Mplayer, its better.

    ^ Why doesnt it work? :( MPlayer is good but when I try DVDs it says "Cant play dvd:/" While totem-xine plays it well.

    VLC worked fine for me in FC5. Can't test now cos I don't have FC anymore.
