im now using mplayer. how about if i just remove all of them and install vlc player? would that take care of everything, including the codecs and everything?

hi
the set up i've is  removed Totem   and have vlc & Rhythmbox    .  The diffecent beewn totem and Rhythmbox  is that totem is more of a movie player & less of a Audio player there for Rhythmbox is a Audio player & does player any movies ......   ???

yep i've tried rhythmbox and it really looks like a nifty player. if i install vlc, do i still need the multimedia codecs like w32codecs and libdvdcss2 or can i remove them along with totem?
