Open YaST (the package installation program) and search for 'mad' The libmad or something like that is needed for mp3 playback. Do note that depending on your local legislation mp3 playback without a license may be considered illegal.

Video playback is a tad more difficult. The SuSE multimedia packages have been mutilated not to playback any common formats (for the same reason as I mentioned for mp3) so you'll be easiest off searching for a 3rd party package of mplayer or xine and installing that. Guru's RPM should have those. They have a great pkg repository btw. (
