    Packmans ffmpeg has various codecs compiled in.

    You could install the entire restricted codecs package from:
    For openSUSE 11.0:
    Restricted Formats/11.0 - openSUSE-Community

    For openSUSE 10.3:
    Restricted Formats/10.3 - openSUSE-Community

    (You didn't specify which one you had so I'm posting both options)

    Alternatively you can add Packman from the Software Repositories / Add / Community Repositories and install ffmpeg from there.

    I think it's better to use lame. If you want a frontend try audacity

    I just opened and played a .mp3 file (called file.mp3) on my openSUSE-10.3 with the command:
    ffplay file.mp3
    ... as noted, the mp3 file played music, with no problem.

    On my PC, the command: rpm -qf /usr/bin/ffplay
    gives:
    ffmpeg-0.4.9svn-20080724.pm.1

    So from my perspective, given that ffplay is provided by ffmpeg, that indicates to me that mp3 files can be played by the packman ffpmeg.

    Right I did a quick peek at the software in a VM - and it's pretty awful

    You have to edit the preset that you want to use and replace the mp3 with libmp3lame.

    WinFF -> Edit -> Presets. Then scroll to the preset to want to change and change the "Preset Command Line" to have "libmp3lame" instead of "mp3" then press Add / Update button - then save.

    Alternatively open /usr/share/winff/presets.xml and change all instances of mp3 to libmp3lame and save the file. (Make a backup first)
