Actually I tried to play .flv file located on my hard drive but nothing happened.Then I installed macromedia flash player then I played a .swf file it worked.So I think the plugin other than libflashplayer.so of Shockwave Flash is not installed.Now can you give info about where this plugins can be found.Please note that I can download them from nearest cybercafe then install on my openSUSE offline.

well if fedora ( or sim. os) and FF3.0.5 the problem might be with "libflashplayer.so"
use /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins-wrapped/nswrapper_32_32.libflashplayer.so"

this fixed Seamonkey on Fedora 9 for me.

It may also be one of the ongoing bugs with flash?
dose this site run the flash animation and the games

To john VV,
I meant that firefox described that libflashplayer.so is needed for playing .spl & .swf files which it did only after I installed marcromedia flash player.Firefox needs libtotem-basic-plugin.so to play ogg,wav,mpeg,flv,mp3 files so from where can I get libtotem-basic-plugin.so.Note that I can download them from nearest cybercafe then put on my openSUSE offline.

not to sure for suse but the totem plugin is not used ( fedora stopped using it in fedora6) .look for the gecko-mediaplayer plugin if you are using the Gnome desktop

To craigevil,
The link you have mentioned requires openSUSE system to be connected to internet then installing software from repositories is one click affair but as I have mentioned I can only download relevant files from narest cyber cafe.So can you tell the rpm's or tarball that are required.
