Thread: playing video files from web pages

    Default playing video files from web pages

    I am using open suse 11.4, and have been trying to play video files from a web site, but when I click on the play link all that happens is that it goes to the page where the video should be but it doesn't load or play, not sure if it is a flash or java problem. the file plays without problem in Ubuntu 10.10 and also Win 7. it is a video file from "http://www.woodsmithtips.com/2011/03/10/doweling-jigs/".
    Any help would be appriciated

    become su in a terminal
    use your mouse to copy and paste this code to the terminal:

    Code:
    zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/openSUSE:/11.4:/Contrib/standard/ contib
    Code:
    zypper ref
    (a) to accept

    Code:
    zypper in chromium
    It will install some dependencies too

    That's it

    I think it's not possible to change the title of the whole thread (at least I couldn't find how), but you can reply in advanced mode (button <go advanced> in the simple reply) and edit the post title, as I did with this.

    I can do it, but it's only effective web side. NNTP users will not see it, though they will see what @brunomcl did
