This error message means that some plugins are missing. You need the H264 plugin ( But I find it weird that it is not already installed on your system. I have 52.4.0 ESR and it was installed by default, as the webpage claims.

Try to see if it has been disabled, else try to install it manually.

Concerning Flashplayer, OpenSUSE does not distribute the package anymore, but you can still install it:
