With KDE

Have you opened Computer, Administrator Settings, Hardware, Sound, and used the Edit button to re-configure your sound? You may then use Other on the same page to Play Test Sound and if necessary to use Volume to enter and adjust the settings for sound. That and adjustments in KMix could help with the problem.

Did you install vlc using the openSUSE link here? It solves many problems with dependencies.

A previous effort

This thread might also give you some leads for information about and changes in your sound set up, using the terminal.
