I looked everywhere but i could not find precompiled binaries of mplayer for X86_64 suse 9.1
What i did though was borrow some help from a Mandrake repository and with a little playing around i managed to make this beast work.

You will need:

I got the above from

i installed with rpm -Uvh --nodeps xxxxxxx.rpm

and i used the win32 codecs from

and after all was finished i also downloaded gmplayer from the first address i gave you above.

Created a shortcut on my KDE panel with command line "gmplayer -quiet -nofs" (no "s")

taddaaaaa all works

As a side note it is SAD that suse doesnt provide mplayer in their ftp's. Such a wonderful program!!!

Hope i helped you

down loaded the rpm mplayer

hi guys I installed Mplayer thanks to the RPM post's. it's good I plays Avi files mpg, why use the command Line just use rpm. took a bit of time as you have down load

lzo rpm
win32dll codec rpm
libtheroa rpm
lime rpm
mplayer plug in rpm
and mplayer RPM it's self [I got the 586 one]

I had to get all of these rpms because YAST would not let me install mplayer by it's self

thanks guys
