.wma in suse


I want to play some tracks of .wma suffix in opensuse 11.0. But it gives me an error of unknown codec!

When I try to install the needed codec it fails.

Please guide me how to play such files.

I use this.

You don't mention what player you are using , but I play Windows media on vlc, which is easily downloaded and installed for openSUSE 11.0 here.

I tried W32 codec, it has not been installed and I didn't find the way to install it.

I installed VLC, it plays the tracks with no sound!!!!

Please let me know what to do
