    hello,
    i am not aware of a distribution called linuxjunior, but from the problem you are having i am guessing you have redhat 8.0.
    go here and download the rpms for redhat 8.0
    http://www.xmms.org/

    here is a cheat sheet on how to istall rpms

    You need the smpeg-xmms plugin to play MPG's in XMMS..

    Go find the MP3 libaries for RH 8.0 and install 'em.

    Try out Mplayer. Much better for video. Play any video format you want to view. ;D

    Ah, but it's worth it! Maybee I just think this because I have a package management system that takes care of it all, but really, it's a great movie player, and is worth the extra effort. (Xine is also good)

    Build an MPlayer package from source on Debian and have it install the dependencies.

    Not really, all you need is mplayer and mplayer-common, get it here if you like.

    I officially fourth that opinon. Mplayer is the best as far as features. Xine and Ogle are good too.

    For music, grab the latest xmms package/source tarball.
