  1. Default vlc error doesnot support vidoe format "MSS2"

    No suitable decoder module:
    VLC does not support the audio or video format "MSS2". Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this.

    Please read the sticky about restricted multimedia codecs. You're probably already in a mix of Videolan en Packman packages.
    - Athlon X6 3.6 GHz, 16 GB DDR3, 64 GB SSD, 3 TB of disks, GT540, openSUSE Factory + KDE
    - ASUS A73SD, Intel + GT610M Optimus, 6 GB, 2 x 120 GB SSD, openSUSE Factory + KDE

    I do experience this too, nearly all codecs, on everything but Mplayer. It produced itself with the latest updates of Packman and KDE installed (using KDE 3.5). I do not think it is a problem of having it installed rightly. There was as far as I recall the process a "downgrade to...." of a library when installing the newest Amarok-pm. Maybe the automated downgrade installed a non pm version (as the version number might have been higher).
    However since then the previous full functionality has been disabled. Will post when I find out why and what library is involved.
    Your mplayer of the pm-repository should work fine though......

    I have a 64 bit system. Try this out if you have the same asset:
    go to yast and try to install the libavcodec52.
    With me that causes an enormous amount of conflicts. The problem with me produced with the latest amarok-pm update. I think you should wait one or two days. There is apparently a problem with a broken dependency. I think they will fix it.
    Alternative would be to de-install amarok completely and to fix the codecs. Then to search for an amarok version that does not have the dependency problem.
    Ps. You VERY rarely have to reinstall an OS for such a reason, don't you think so. The major part of the problems fix swiftly by the work of the comunity and the rest is solvable mainly after a few days with a bit of search-machine works (with other words, you altavista/bing/google/yahoo it, to be politically correct). Just be patient. If your "life depends on it" then install the packman version of mplayer that does currently preserve full functionality (at least with me).

    How can one possibly answer you to this question without knowing what files you have installed.....?
    You "un-install" files by deselecting them in yast, it is very straightforward.
    You open yast - software management.
    You see the window with the search function and you search for the package you wish to change.
    In the lower part of the window you notice tags. Look at the tag "version" to understand what version you have installed. That gives you an idea if there is a *-pm version available. You select it and tell yast to force an update of the package (you put a green tag) and that's it. If there are conflicts try to solve it. If it is too complicated to solve now, well I just told you to be patient and wait for one or two days.

    I can reproduce this problem with vlc 1.0.2 from packman on x86_64 _only_, i586 works fine.

    Looks like a bug, if anything else is OK (no mix with videolan packages, I don't even have videolan in my repo list) please post your reports here on the packman mailing list.
