    Default mplayer dependencies

    i've tried this how to.. from this page
    Playing wmv in Firefox HOWTO - openSUSE
    and dependencies warn me.



    Step 2: Install MPlayer and mplayerplug-in packages

    * Still in YaST
    * Select "Software," and then "Software Management"
    * In the Filter drop-down box in the upper left corner, select "Installation Source"
    * Choose the packman source
    * Scroll down until you see the "mplayerplug-in," and select this package.
    * Check to see if the "MPlayer" package is installed or not. Most likely, it is not, unless you have added another source that includes this package.
    o If the box next to the package is unchecked, select it.
    * Now click the Accept button to install the package(s).

    That's it. You should now be able to play most .wmv files you come across on the internet.

    how can i solve this?

    should i just continue and let them install those dependencies?
    so newbie here that dont even know what dependencies are

    After installing MPlayer from Packman you should install the extra binary codecs available at MPlayer - The Movie Player. Having these it will play almost everything.
