Re: Multimedia setup in CentOS 6

Hmm, quick look at that guide makes me think it's rather out of date, at least in regards to Win32 codecs. They are more or less obsolete, current versions of mplayer can play practically everything without the need for those.
I don't know what all you need from the multimedia world, but I personally use ATrpms, not RPMForge. I used it in Fedora too, so I'm probably biased. :) Packages from ATrpms are generally later versions than those from RPMForge too. Plus, they include latest Nvidia drivers which I would otherwise have to get from ELrepo, so one less repo needed for me. But of course, RPMForge has some stuff ATrpms or any other repo doesn't have. You would have to compare them regarding your needs.
Hmm, one thing. Cinelerra, which to my knowlegde is only in ATrpms, doesn't seem to work. I tried on two systems and the gui is always completely unresponsive. Rebuilding the provided src.rpm doesn't help, same result. But compiling latest GIT (from a few days ago) against ATrpms packages works just fine. Another bug to report after the 2012 starts..
