    be sure all gstreamer packages come from Packman. You can see in yast-softwaer Management in the version tab at bottom right

    Cheese 3.16 in Leap is broken (don't remember exactly where...), you may uninstall it.
    I installed Cheese 3.18.1-198.1 from OpenSUSE-Gnome repo (search https://software.opensuse.org/ in "other versions").
    It brings in 3 libraries that don't conflict with the other Gnome 3.16 setup and works nicely on the 3.16 desktop.

    Yes, I switched all packages to the Packman repository version, but it's all the same.

    Thank you.

    Does only Cheese not work or any web chat applications too? I mean Skype, Tox etc.

    Try the following:
    1. Remove the libclutter-gst-3_0-0 if it is installed.
    2. Remove ~/.cache/gstreamer-1.0/

    It works for me

    I found it here

    I read that removing libclutter-gst-3_0-0 package causes the unistallation of Totem package. I have not been able to test it because I don't have Totem installed. Anyway cheese works for me now.

    To the OP:
    You might have noticed that the two posts in this thread do not require (or even suggest) doing a vendor change to Packman.

    In fact,
    Unless someone can suggest a specific reason to do so, I only have seen a concrete scenario to support VLC which AFAIK has nothing to do with any scenario supporting any other application.

    So, unless you install VLC I'd suggest doing a vendor change back to the OSS undoing the vendor change to Packman.

    NO that will break Firefox, Chromium, gstreamer, amarok, xine and a lot of other apps that need working multimedia, Firefox and Chromium without packman can't render mp4 video's, amarok without packman can't play mp3,mp4 or any real audio file.

    I did it.

    It helps. Cheese now works.

    But I can't use Totem after that
