playing OGG files with mplayer

  • (all steps as root) make sure you have libogg and libogg-devel installed:
    yum update libogg
    yum update libogg-devel
  • get the latest libtheora.tar.gz from theora.org
  • install libtheora:
    tar zxvf libtheora-1.0alpha7.tar.gz
    cd libtheora-1.0alpha7
    ./configure
    make install
  • now install mplayer (if you're compiling from a directory you've compiled from before, make sure you do a make clean before running configure; make install again)
