    Question Suse11.2 no play .mp3 etc

    I've got a clean install of Suse11.2 64bit and anyhow after manually getting yast2 to actually work i've now come to a halt as i cannot seem to get any type of music/video files to play.

    So curious to know if anyone has some suggestions to help me get some music playing as it's getting pretty boring not having any tunes playing through the speakers.

    most of the music is in .mp3 format and in the past on other versions of suse 10.0 10.3 etc it always worked straight outta the box, so consider this a small call for help.

    Turned out the default clean install didn't install the relevant codecs so i updated the repository .xml and grabbed all the newer codecs.

    thanks for the link westin. at least there are still some useful people wandering around here.

    Most Linux distributions cannot legally include proprietary codecs.

    Licensing, etc.


    Easily downloaded though.

    They first started doing that back in... 9.x or something. They had an update after the install was basically done that you could get and it added MP3 support and all that, I remember it too. Didn't bother me much, though, since I have basically every CD I own ripped as MP3 and OGG. And when I make music, since I use LMMS, I have to use OGGs for that, so if I want to sample something, I need an OGG as it won't touch MP3s as of yet. I usually keep the OGGs on another drive since I have a LOT of music, and that's like 40 extra gigs easy.

    Curious anyone else running Suse 11.2?

    I'm not digging the plasmid widget thing completly. But i guess it does put my graphics card to work displaying all that eye candy.

    I've got 11.2 running on a few systems, but only one has a GUI... which is Xfce.
