I am fairly New to SuSe12.2. Have just downloaded ( After Several attemps) and Installed Videolan VLC Media , and Installed it Successfully. Howver there are several AVI and MPEG Videos I can NOT Play.

Even if I use Media Player, provided with Suse, the program asks me for H264 Decoder and MPEG -4AAC Decoders. I have found the decoders, from various sites, but Iam not sure which site is the Safest. Can any on put me right?? I am sure there must be experts out ther that will perhaps laugh at this simple request.. It will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I installed my VLC and all the necesary codecs following the steps in this site, and is working good in Opensuse 12.2 Gnome edition.

Good luck to you.
