From the little I've played with it, I find I like Xine for a general CD/MP3/AVI/etc. player. Especially since it plays CDs without an audio cable installed (cheap computer, I said).

Installation was simple via yum:

yum install xine xine-lib xine-lib-deel xine-skins
Now to get it to do things. From the GNOME menu, go to Preferences => CD Properties Where is says "Run command when CD is inserted" putting in
brings up Xine when an audio CD is inserted in the drive, but I have to manually click the CD button to get it to play. Should be an auto mount option. From the man page you'd think "cdda://1" would do it, but that just gives you error messages.
