totem video player, missing plugins
 
I am using opensuse 11.2. The totem video player states that I am missing a gstreamer plugin. I checked to see that gst-ffmpeg plugins is loaded, also libdvdcss, libdvdnav, libdvdplay, and libdvdread are also loaded. I would like if someone could please tell me what gstream plugin I'm missing, and where to place it. I'm very new to linux, and don't know much about computers. So, please make your answer so I can understand. I thank you for your help.

What type of file were you trying to play (e.g. .wav, .avi, other?)? A good site for making your opensuse a functional desktop is http://www.howtoforge.com/the-perfec...use-11.2-gnome (pay particular attention to p.3 and p.4, on p.4 is a good list of packages to install to get you started, including plugins and codecs). Hope this helps :)
