Well the rpm from freshrpms had sound (it was compiled with faad
support) but no video, even using the DLL's from mplayer's site. The
mplayer rpm (along with rpm's of the codec's) work for video but no

I've downloaded the src rpm and the tarball and will try recompiling to
include support.

Thanks for the help, I'll post about my success once I try this (a
little busy but may get to it later tonight. I'm at linuxfest northwest
tomorrow -- or am trying to be anyway).
