I recommend Mplayer as a multimedia player, it is compatible with most formats and its lightweight, try that and download its codecs from their site:

Apart from mplayer being a nice player, your problem with kaffeine was due to a restricted version of xine that comes with SUSE (Kaffeine is a xine frontend). If you plan to use xine in the future, deinstall the xine and kaffeine packages that come with suse and install the versions from packman.
