Media in Opensuse

Filed under: Uncategorized — Chris Merck @ 4:47 pm

So I wanted(needed 🙂 ) to play mpegs in opensuse 10.
Heres whatcha gotta do
add packman repository(s) to Yast
enable the REFRESH option on the packman repository(s)
Open up the software management window in yast
install the following (allow all dependancies):
win32codec-all
mplayer
mplayerplug-in
k3b-mad
k3b-artsd

note: getting mplayer installs codecs for all of xine, so kaffeine will play mpegs now! yea!
