I'd install MPlayer if I were you. It might be on your install cd/dvds.

You will be better using Suse's package manager to install your software.I am guessing that it is online video that you are trying to view.You will need to install flash-player for this to work.As you have discovered,it isn't installed by your browser.Use the package manager.
