2. Http/Server's name : I think it is this : http://download.videolan.org/
3. Directory : maybe something like this : http://download.videolan.org/pub/vid...vlc/SuSE/11.0/

Thanks in advanced

Go to YaST -> Software -> Community Repositories and enable the Packman repository. After that go to YaST -> Software -> Software Management, search for VLC and select it for installation.

Install libdvdcss and your multimedia apps should be able to handle encrypted dvd. I am not sure about Ogle, have you searched for it in YasT -> Software -> Software Management?

I tend to use Xine based applications like Xine, Kaffeine and Totem-xine. Another good multimedia application is Mplayer.

I am useing the KDE 3.5 desktop i have Kaffeine,Xine Vlc, Real player, Drangon player,Amarok, independent Flash player from adobe. I can`t install Totem-xine because that for the gnome desktop.

Maybe i don`t need more players what do you think?

I did find Mplayer on the internet but i need to add Community Repositories and enable the Packman repository. How do i do that because i have download the rpm but i can`t instal it please help me?

I've already shown you in post 2, how to enable the Packman repository. This is the repository that contains VLC, mplayer, libdvdcss etc. Once the Packman repository is setup, you can then run YaST -> Software -> Software Management, search for the packages you want to install and then select them for installation when you find them.

It seems like for some reason you don't get what I said above. You need to configure the Packman repository if you want to install multimedia apps that work properly on openSUSE. VLC, mplayer, libdvdcss etc are in this repository, so if correctly configured, you should be able to find mplayer when you search in YaST -> Software -> Software Management.

You only setup the Packman repository once (which you should have done if you followed the insctructions in post 2). All you need to do now is install mplayer by going to YaST -> Software -> Software Management, searching for mplayer and selecting it for installation.

My biggest problem with your solutions is that my distro is in my native language and not english. So i am a littel slow to find out what you mean when you come up with a solution.

But tonight i find out what Community Repositories is called in my language, i have now enable every option in the Packman repository.

Thank you very much for your help

I was beginning to worry that I was not being clear, but I guess communication can be difficult where there is a language barrier. I am not a native English speaker myself, so I can sympathise with your situation. Anyway, I am glad to have helped.
