Play Audio Video Files In RedHat 5.4?

I just want to know how to play audio and video files on red hat 5.4?
I have downloaded Mplayer and I don't know how to install it as it is in .tar.bz2 format.

    To install a tar.bz2 format, please extract the contents of that file to any folder.

    After that, please open terminal, navigate to the folder you extracted and type this command.
    Your program will be installed in a jiffy. My best advice is to use .rpm or .deb installation files. I guess it is .rpm in your case. 😀 All the best. 😁

    I have installed realplayer through .rpm package. The installation has shown successful complete. But still I am unable to open my mp3 & video files.
    What should I do? And what is the problem?
