    Default One Click Multimedia install and VLC mozilla plugin

    I just installed the multimedia package from

    Multimedia in One Click

    I didn't see and option to install the VLC mozilla plugin. How do I install that?

    Hi,

    I suggest you check your multimedia settings with this script to get the most out of your openSUSE experience.

    MultiMedia Checker or mmcheck - Check Your openSUSE MultiMedia Setup in Just 16 Steps

    It is really worth the time.

    Ok, ran that, installed the vlc mozilla plugin with Yast. I tried to display one of our web pages that use VLC and it wouldn't play. So I disabled the Totem VLC plugin because it was trying to play the application/x-vlc-plugin. Now Firefox is crashing as soon as the page opens. Should I post this problem on another thread or keep it going here?

    Second question is in the mmcheck script, option 2 was display all repos. I did and it said if I had more than 9 it was bad... I have 11. Having just updated from 11.3 to 11.4 should I delete all the 11.3 repos?

    fyi - it's in the Packman repo PackMan :: Informationen zum Paket vlc

    you should use the Packman repo for all your multimedia needs as they include codecs that openSuse can not because of licensing
    openSUSE Leap 42.1 x64, Plasma 5 & KDE 4.14.x, pretty current proprietary Nvidia drivers (self-compiled)

    Personally, I think the VLC plugin "jumped the shark" quite some time ago. I wouldn't be using it if I had a choice! ;-)
