I can neither use kaffeine nor VLC to watch divx-files (didn't test other file types) anymore. I believe that a software update must be the culprit, as I could watch the files one week ago and otherwise didn't even look at the configuration of my notebook.

The actual behaviour of kaffeine is that I can hear the audio, but the screen remains black. VLC doesn't even show a black screen, although I hear audio, too. My guess is that the decoder doesn't work right anymore, but I don't know how to track the real cause down.

In the meantime, would it be possible to select over YAST an older version of the software package being the culprit? This would be easier if I'd which package is the actual cause here.
