You should convert your media into a free format, then they will play.
Install ffmpeg2theora (use YaST).

Note: please use a more helpful title in future - we already know you want help - your title should say what you want help with. Also, please edit your profile to reflect your distro and location. This helps us provide more specific answers.

Welcome to LQ.

Use your package manager and do a search for codecs. Look for something like win32codecs or similar.
