    At a first advice it seems your install media is corrupted. Deg you performed a media check at the beginning of the installation? Have you wrote the downloaded iso image at the lowest write speed possible?

    What makes me think about a dvd writing error is the message "can't provide *** from resository Opensuse dvd". Anyway if your problem are missing multimedia codecs they are available via yast single click install. Tomorrow i'll post the url from which you can install all the necessary

    Playing a dvd video is a matter of installing libdvdcss and libdvdnav. Those are available in the packman resository so add this source to yast. I do prefere xine to play dvd so try to install it and upgrade libxine trought yast. Try those steps and report again your experiences. It's not a pain nowadays to play dvd video in linux

    No problem. Xine has to be installed via yast. Did you add the packman resository? Search Xine and mark it for install/upgrade and mark also Xine-gui libxine and the other decoding plugins. Simply in yast perform the search for Xine and you will get all this stuff

    Hi
    sorry about the late feedback (work) still having problems with totem after taking your advice.I have a error coming up now which i have reported.
    reading other threads about Mplayer i decided to try it out, almost worked, if you can help with this error (or anybody else ) it would make my day !
    error comes up (initializing the selected video-out (-vo) device)?
    what does this mean and how do i fix it thanks
