OpenSUSE 10 beta 3 - Multimedia


Hi,

I just installed OpenSUSE 10 Beta 3 and I can't seem to play MP3s, MPEGS, Flash, AVI, DVDs and basically any other multimedia file. I've already installed the Windows Codecs and looked around, but I'm not quite sure how to proceed next. How can I fix this?

Thanks in advance!

For mp3 open YAST and search for mad install all of the packages.Then install Xine from here Daily xine RPMS with CSS support (Linux DVD player).


OpenSUSE is open source software. It does not contain multimedia support or other propriatery software. You have to install whatever you need. Flash has to be installed manually, download it from macromedia.

Java you can add a source and download it.
Acrobat has to be downloaded from Adobe and installed.

I'm sorry, but I cannot find any "mad install" or "mad" anywhere in YAST's Software Management component. Please clarify.
