    Here are a few suggestions for you. You did not mention which version of openSUSE that you are using. However, the problem could be your multimedia setup.

    Here is a section that explains it in great detail:

    Multi-media and Restricted Format Installation Guide

    Here is about the new Packman

    Packman Layout Explained

    Here is the mmcheck bash script file. Look at Message #69 for the most recent version:

    MMCHECK - Check Your Multimedia in 10 Steps - Script File, as proposed by RedDwarf

    Here is another script good for testing your audio setup.

    S.T.A.R.T. - SuSE Terminal Audio Reporting Tool

    Thank you for your reply. The OS is: 11.4 and the Web-browser is Firefox. I followed the instructions in your link with no success. I would like to mention that the problem is only with Firefox, audio/video works fine with Google Chrome.

    John, you may not have a the adobe flash plugin installed. Use yast to do an online update and add the non-oss repos. Once you have flash, youtube will work.

    To check your flash setup you can use the same command as I do in mmcheck test 14 shown here:

    Code:
    14. Show if Java Packages are Installed from openSUSE ...                   
    
    Command: rpm --query --all --queryformat '%{NAME}-%{VERSION}-%{RELEASE}-%{ARCH} -> %{VENDOR}\n' '*java-*'
    
    java-1_6_0-sun-alsa-1.6.0.u23-3.3-x86_64 -> openSUSE
    java-1_6_0-sun-plugin-1.6.0.u23-3.3-x86_64 -> openSUSE
    java-1_6_0-sun-1.6.0.u23-3.3-x86_64 -> openSUSE
    
    You should expect to have only Sun Java Packages installed.  If your files 
    include the name --> openjdk <--, it is suggested that they be uninstalled.
    
    Press <enter> to continue...
    Why not post this output to see your flash setup. You can find mmcheck here:

    MMCHECK - Check Your Multimedia in 10 Steps - Script File, as proposed by RedDwarf

    Message #69 has the most reset version to use.

    I added the non-oss flash-plugin. All is well now.

    Again, why not open up a terminal session and type this command:

    Code:
    rpm --query --all --queryformat '%{NAME}-%{VERSION}-%{RELEASE}-%{ARCH} -> %{VENDOR}\n' '*java-*'
    You can copy and paste it in from this message and then copy and past the output here in a message:
    Code:
    java-1_6_0-sun-alsa-1.6.0.u23-3.3-x86_64 -> openSUSE
    java-1_6_0-sun-plugin-1.6.0.u23-3.3-x86_64 -> openSUSE
    java-1_6_0-sun-1.6.0.u23-3.3-x86_64 -> openSUSE
    On my computer this is the result of this command. I am trying to determine if you have the correct Java files loaded on your computer.

    Thank You,

    PS Your Comment that said: "I added the non-oss flash-plugin. All is well now. " is good. I just wondered what you originally had loaded on your PC.
