I got it working now.

It isn't hard when you install this package:

http://packman.links2linux.org/index...ction=124&vn=2

Install libxine1-1_rc6a-0.pm.0.i586.rpm with YaST, then when you are confronted with missing packages by YaST, look at the bottom of the page, the missing packages are probably there.

Good luck!

Thanks, 4hp Installed that package and bam I can play .avi files. The only other video problem I have is I cant play DVD's that I buy some how SuSe prents it from being played fo legal reasons which is stupid since I own DVDs.
