Is movieplayer mplayer?  If not, that's what I'd suggest, it's always
handled everything I've thrown at it--I install it from rpmforge. 

I also have rpmforge's vlc, (and rpm -qR |wc -l shows 140 dependencies), 
compared to mplayer's 84.  

I would strongly recommend using priorities.  

If you give a sample of the sort of dependency error you're getting,
someone might be better able to help.

Buffy: No, but, see, Mom, that doesn't really work for me. We're 
just going to the magic shop, no school supplies there. 
Dawn: Yeah, Mom. I'm not going to Hogwarts. (chuckles) Hog- 
(looks at Buffy, who's not amused) Jeez, crack a book sometime.
