Fedora Core So, there it is, the highly anticipated second release of Fedora Core. Again, I wanted to wait for a few days for things to calm down,and again, I couldn't resist updating my production system within two days after the release. Well, I'm just a Linux junkie, i guess...

I really prefer Mplayer as my video player, but I think it would be good if these repositories, compiled support for the extra codecs that we need.

I wish I could just drop the win32codecs, quicktime, real codecs in a directory and they would work. But they don't, you have to compile Mplayer yourself which I haven't yet done.

BTW about Totem, I wish that could give you the option of using Mplayer as the backend. I often set the options -framedrop -vop pp when playing a video because my PC is underpowered. I have not been able to find such features in XINE, and therefore XINE based playback is unusable to me.

To the author of the article, I think XMMS is not installed by default because Rhythmbox is instead.

Also for anyone who use KDE with FC2, has the Bluecurve KDE theme been updated in FC2?
