    amaork is probably closet to winamp and check this link for the codecs to play mp3's 1-click-collection - openSUSE-Community look under multimedia codecs pack

    I use and love amarok, but I must say - if you are looking for something comparable to WinAmp, Amarok isn't the closest although, in my humble opinioin, it's better.

    If you really enjoy Winamp, you would be better off with XMMS. It is almost a dead ringer, and can use Winamp skin files.

    XMMS - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    X Multimedia System

    In regards to the best place to find software, that would be the build service, most things you search for, you can find with a one click installer.

    If you're looking for a single application for both video and audio, then it is Xine.

    You can install it all using Yast, and it will play just about anything - including the 'protected' formats like avi, dvd, mp3 etc.

    Do you have any sound? Ensure you have your repositories setup per the guidance on this page, with only NON-OSS, OSS, Update and Packman added (add other's later if you want, but not now while you are learning):
    http://opensuse-community.org/Repositories

    Then install w32codec-all, mad, lame, amarok, libxine1, xine-ui, smplayer, libffmpeg (all from Packman, not Novell-SuSE-GmbH versions (where there are different versions)).

    When I first installed OS11, I found that I had no sound until I configured my sound in yast and adjusted the master volume setings. I needed to do this once and only once.

    As far as players go, I prefer mplayer.

    In Linux (and not just openSUSE) I think it is reasonably accurate to say there is not one application that serves BOTH audio and video superbly. Instead there are applications that do an excellent job of playing and categorizing/tracking one's audio (some with limited video playing capability), and there are other (different) applications that do an excellent job of playing video (with a host of available features) with limited audio playing capability.

    For audio I like amarok. I also use xmms on occasion, but amarok is my main player.

    For video, I use smplayer, vlc, and xine-ui interchangeably.

    In all cases, both audio and video, I obtain my applications and codecs from the Packman packager repository. The applications are listed on the Packman packager site: PackMan :: home
    Note the "advanced" search function (upper left, click on magnifying glass) works great on that site. The tabs (udates/packages/search/help .... etc ... ) are also very good.

    Amarok is indeed the best for audio.
    XMMS is a little dated now.
    Best for video in my opinion would be SMPlayer
    Nice GUI and plays anything you throw at it.
