    Enter YaST->Software Repositories, click on "Add", choose "Community Repositories", and add the "Packman Repository".
    You should find vlc-codecs then.

    You might want to search for "opensuse codecs" or something similar. There are a lot of threads and guides about the multimedia stuff...

    As you posted this in the Multimedia section, you probably should have read the sticky threads at the top. E.g. this one: https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...a-in-One-Click

    Just adding the repo is not enough.
    Install "vlc-codecs" as I already told you.
    Because you have added the repo now, you should find it in YaST->Software Management.

    If there are conflicts, choose the solution with "(change vendor) openSUSE --> Packman" or similar.

    Have a look at your second post in this thread and do the same again, i.e. enter "vlc" in the search field.
    "vlc-codecs" should show up there now, so click on the box next to the package's name to install it.

    use the GUI as you did above

    or the terminal ( a lot better in my opinion )
    Code:
    su -
    zypper se vlc 
    ------- then from that list from the search install "vlc-codecs" -----------
    zypper in vlc-codecs
    simple

    BUT the codecs are in the "restricted formats "
    and they are in the "packman" repo
