    Run vlc from an xterm and report any errors. ie. if the video is "video.avi", then type:
    vlc /home/username/path/to/video/file/video.avi
    and report the errors.

    Also provide the output of:
    rpm -q vlc
    rpm -qa | grep ffmpeg


    It would also help if you name the video and audio codec of the file you are trying to play.

    Please, as noted above, run vlc from an xterm and report any errors. ie. if the video is "video.avi", then type:
    vlc /home/username/path/to/video/file/video.avi
    and report the errors.

    Strange you would have a packman packaged rpm but not a packman packaged libffmpeg0. If it were me, I would use a packman packaged libffmpeg0:
    ie for 32-bit PC: PackMan :: Informationen zum Paket ffmpeg
    for 64-bit PC: PackMan :: Informationen zum Paket ffmpeg

    Also, make certain you have installed w32codec-all and xvid. In addition to vlc, a good player is smplayer (an excellent front end to mplayer). In the links I provide, ensure you navigate to your opensuse architecture:
    w32codec-all - PackMan :: Informationen zum Paket Win32-Codecs
    xvid - PackMan :: Informationen zum Paket dvd2xvid
    smplayer - PackMan :: Informationen zum Paket smplayer

    I believe ffmpeg (and likely other apps) can play a 3gp file. So ensure you have ffmpeg and libffmpeg0 installed:
    PackMan :: Informationen zum Paket ffmpeg

    I think amrnb and amrwb provide 3gp capabilities:
    amrnb: PackMan :: Informationen zum Paket amrnb
    amrwb: PackMan :: Informationen zum Paket amrwb
    I found the above by a quick search on the packman packager web site. I recommend you learn how to use the packman web site search engine.

    output of that vlc command is:

    *** PULSEAUDIO: Unable to connect: Connection refused
    X Error of failed request: BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)
    Major opcode of failed request: 140 (XVideo)
    Minor opcode of failed request: 19 ()
    Serial number of failed request: 89
    Current serial number in output stream: 90


    thank you

    this is error report which i am getting when i am playing with totem player

    The program 'totem' received an X Window System error.
    This probably reflects a bug in the program.
    The error was 'BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)'.
    (Details: serial 50 error_code 11 request_code 140 minor_code 19)
    (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
    that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
    To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
    option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
    backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

    You could try removing pulse audio, and then try again.

    To see what pulse audio apps you have installed type:
    rpm -qa | grep pulse
    and then remove them. Make a note as to what you removed, so you can put them back on later, if it should be appropriate.

    The program 'totem' received an X Window System error.
    I'm not a totem user, so it would be more useful if someone who has actually used totem chimes in.

    Now with my having stated that, if I were on someone else's openSUSE-11.0 PC, and I saw this error, I would be inclined to investigate if it is caused by either:
    a. 3D desktop affects interfering with totem, or
    b. inappropriate video driver chosen in totem. Many applications (such as vlc and mplayer) give one a choice as to which video driver one can select. Its possible totem does as well.
