SuSE10 Q - Which plugin am I missing for video's?

I will double click a file I've imported from my WinXP partition and the following will happen:

Xine will open with the following error messsage:
"There is no demuxer plugin available to handle {filename.mpg}. Usually this means that the file format was not recognized"

If I try to open one of the mpg/mpeg files with Kaffeine I get this error message:
"No plugin found to handle this resource {filename.mpg}

I'll start the program Xine and then open one of the files in question and will get the following error message:
"The stream (filename.mpg} use an unsupported codec:
Video Codec:MSMPEG4 V1/V2 (win32) (MP42).

Obviously I'm missing something on my SuSE10 can someone please tell me what? Thanks for your time/response.

Simple answer:

1. Go to here and add Guru and Packman to your YaST sources.

2. Look for win32, quicktime and install what you find.

You should be good to go!

Also, this is from 9.3 but is still mostly relevant:
