mplayer and xine should work (they do for me, at least). Kaffeine is the front end to xine in KDE, so I would try that first.

Mplayer, xine, and Kaffeine are found in the Packman repositories.

some info on how to enable the repo:

works for me using mplayer!

I compiled mplayer 1.7 from source (www.mplayerhq.com) and it plays .flv files neatly.

Link to VLC Player for SuSE

Here is VLC Player for SuSE (download page with "One-Click-Install" option): http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-suse.html
I posted it in other post because of forum rules.
Sorry for my English!
