Due to the licensing restrictions, like most distros, openSUSE don’t have the codecs bundled along with the installation DVD. But thanks to their 1-click installer, it isn’t hard to get the Green Chameleon to start playing all those mp3’s/videos of yours.
It involves just 2 steps!
First, get the Restricted Format 1-click installer. Here’s the links:
This will enable you to have:
- Latest Amarok (with MP3 Support) for KDE, or Helix-Banshee for GNOME users
- Encrypted DVD (libdvdcss)
- Extra xine codecs, for MPEG-4 etc. (libxine1)
- K3b with MP3 Support (k3b-codecs)
- Win 32 Codecs (w32codec-all)
