    Quick update:
    Other than a meaningless email fro Novell SLED support about dependencies, etc, I got nothing back.

    I decided to see if my opensuse 11.1 with gnome worked, sodid the one-click install for gnome multimedia.

    Opensuse 11.1 gnome gives the same errors, suggesting there is something missing in gnome with both opensuse and sled.
    In previous opensuse installs I have always used kde3, and never had a problem, but there is a problem with gnome.

    Anyone else had this problem using gnome and no kde installed?

    > Opensuse 11.1 gnome gives the same errors

    what error are you seeing in both SLED and openSUSE, exactly?

    if you start the offending applications via a terminal, and try to use
    them what errors do you see?

    when you wrote "When I install the multimedia apps, only kaffeine will
    read multimedia dvds." i now ask: so? if kaffeine plays it, what is
    the problem?

    and, you wrote: "Nautilus, brasero and totem say it is a restricted
    format and refuse to read it."

    does that mean they won't play a dvd?
    - i don't think nautilus (a file manager) 'plays' anything..
    - same for brasero, it burns not plays..
    - what exact error do you see in the terminal when totem refuses to
    read it?

    are you by chance trying to figure out a way to duplicate copyrighted
    DVDs?

    As an update:
    There is an opensuse 11.x thread that has a similar problem. By mounting the drivemanuslly as root, nautilus/gnome apps will be able to read the dved files and native gnome multimedia apss work. (totem, brasero, etc.)
    Trouble with sled is the updates change and a fresh install yesterday has everything working fine!
    I'll post instructions for sled 11 to the restricted format thread later.

    Hi
    I use the fluendo codecs and libdvdcss2 (just compiled the src rpm from
    packman) have no issues with media

    I also use handbrake (standalone application http://handbrake.fr/ )
    which I have made a customized rpm from for transcoding dvds to mpeg4
    <cough> I mean make backups....

    When you say you use the gstreamer-fluendo plugins, does this mean you don't add the plugins-bad?
    The only problem is totem doesn't find the mpeg2 decoder.

    My problem was not that totem wasn't playing dvd's, gnome/nautilus refused to mount the dvd. If I mounted it as root from command line, it would mount and I could play the dvd!
    Trouble is, it works fine on a fresh install without updating during install, but the novell updates cause it to stop working.
    However, as explained, the latest set of updates seem to have fixed this and everything works, provided you update dureing install!

    Hi
    Correct, just the standard gstreamer plugins, base, good and
    schroedinger along with the fluendo bundle.

    I have had gstreamer updates, but everything is working ok since the
    install in May.

    My initial test install with an eval licence in May early June worked fine. It was only after I did a fresh install in mid-June with a full licence code that things went wrong.
    Yesterday's fresh install worked fine, except for mpg2 decoding. Seems to want an mpg2 codec.

    Hi
    You could try sending an email to Mr Petersen at
    http://www.pcc-services.com/ who has built SLE10 rpm's and see if he is
    going to prepare a SLE11 one?

    I also use vmware build of SLE11 as a build environment and use src
    rpms for other building eg handbrake so I keep the main system as clean
    as possible.

    No issues here with playing mpeg2 either via totem or in firefox.

    After many weeks of messing around with different installs, I finally discovered the problem.
    The SLED11 update kernel 2.27.23.0.1.1 prevents automount of udf filesystems on some systems.
    My 2 gigabyte motherboards have a problem with the kernel, but my asrock one doesn't!

    Hi,
    I have not yet seen any SLED11 'restricted format' but its early days. The HP 625 laptop only arrived Tuesday morning (48 hours ago).

    By default the machine set up with GDM and Gnome. I used Yast to install KDM and KDE 4.2 from Novell and deleted much of Gnome. With updates the total download
    was 3.2 GBs. On each update to a new install of a KDE package a warning was given that the software was not covered or a new license required. (Looks as
    though I invalidated the license as soon a Yast was entered although updating from Novell repos.)

    Dolphin and Konqueror have no problems reading DVD's and Audio CDs.

    To get Kaffeine to work, I added updates from Packman for openSUSE 11.1, libdvdcss from VLC manually and xine-lib 1.1.19 from xine-project manually.
    For Automounting I used the info from jdmcdaniel3's thread 'Multimedia Optical Drive Naming (ie /dev/dvd & /dev/cdrom) Howto in opneSUSE' on this forum.
