I have the same problem when I install my fedora system, just with MP3's though, something to do with the copyright. I have just used yum (im a real big noob so I don't know if you can use Yum with Suse :S) but if you have Yum, i just type
Do you have 2 soundcards installed? I had this problem earlier today. XMMS was detecting my onboard audio, while my audigy sound card is what I use for output. IF this is your case, or someone else that is looking at this, make sure that you have the right audio device selected. Don't assume that it auto-detects the right card. You can select your audio device when you click the "configure" buttoon when picking the output plugin. Don't know if this helps, just my two cents.
It seems a lot of distros disable MP3's by default because of licencing issues. Just make sure you have downloaded the appropriate MP3 decoders. I had the same problem back in the day with FC2, and it is as easy as googling for the appropriate decoder and installing the RPM. In fact, I had the same issue with some video formats too and came to the solution of MPlayer's codecs combined with Xine. Beautiful.
