    That's why i recommend having Packman's repo, you can use it to update Kaffeine to work with dvd's/mp3's etc.Either one of those url's will do

    If you added the Packman repo, go to YaST - software management. in the search-box type kaffeine. In the right hand pane,right-click kaffeine & select all in this list, then, update if newer available.Click on apply & the Packman version should be installed.

    Hi

    thanks for reply

    yes I had, just did the above confirming kaffeine is from pacman and it's the same. Wont play audio cd or dvd in Kaffeine but ok in the VLC media player!

    Strange?

    Perhaps you haven't activated the VideoLAN (makers of vlc player) repository for the one-shot installation of libdvdcss, then delete that repo so its stuff won't conflict with Packman's?

    Gotta install libdvdcss for playback of most commercial dvd. Just go into YaST Repositories, add, select community repos, add the VideoLAN one, search in Software Management for libdvdcss, install it, go back into repositories and delete that repo.

    There are a few sticky how-to's here for other recommended things to get all the multimedia going.

    I've been playing with the gecko-mediaplayer browser plugin available from Packman (uninstall the totem-plugin then install that). Once mplayer and w32codecs are installed (though I also install most of the ffmpeg stuff too), that plugin appears to be most hassle free to get most files on the net to play. With other distros I stick to totem but OpenSUSE appears to thwart it working with the gstreamer restricted (plugins-ugly) codecs even after they're installed so I looked about and found that new gecko plugin.

    Install that, flash, and sun-java6 and you should be internet multimedia ready.

    I also, in Software Management, change the list to repositories and with the Packman repo selected right click one of the packages and choose all in this update to a newer version if available. That gets a lot of what's left over after installing the other things I mentioned.
