apt-get update

apt-get install mplayer

 

Its always a good idea to update before. What update does is query the sites you have in your source.list file and find all the rpms each site has to download. Then it saves them on your computer and figures out what might need to be upgraded and what needs to be installed. So to upgrade your system run

 

apt-get update

apt-get upgrade

 

that should be down at least once a week to sty current :)

If you want to check out other players, I suggest xine, vlc, and ogle.

xine is pretty decent, and I've always had problems getting ogle to work the way I think it should. Maybe I'm just a nerd. Yah, that's probably it. Anyway, Mplayer is in my opinion great. So is Xine. Enjoy, glad to hear that you got it up and working.
