    I've installed VLC but when it starts, it closes just by itself.

    I personally use mplayer since it playes almost all video formats, needs
    no extra codecs and is easy to install. Just go to yast->software
    management and search for it.

    Birungi, I use Kaffeine, KMplayer, and Mplayer. When I added these I
    also downloaded three other files:

    1) W32codec-all
    2) xine-ui
    3) mplayerthumbs

    I can play any video format on these three players. The only change I
    had to make was adding .flv as a format in the file associations
    configuration screen.

    Mplayerthumbs gives you nice thumbnail images of the videos in your
    home directory. I do not know if xine-ui really is needed, but I have
    always loaded it anyway.

    Note: I am using SuSE 11.0 and have not yet tried VLC player. However,
    I do have VLC loaded on my SuSE 10.0 laptop and it works just fine.

    Birungi, I just downloaded VLC onto my SuSE 11.0 system and it works
    great.

    Try loading the files I mentioned in previous post and see it that
    helps.

    Good luck.

    Exactly what steps did you take to install mplayer and at what step does
    it crash.

    Reporting any errors you might be getting would make it easier to help
    you as well.

    Try starting mplayer without opening a video at all, does that work?

    Also the desktop environment you're using (KDE 3.5 / KDE4 / Gnome)
    would be good to know.

    From what I understand you're using 11 and not 11.1?
