    Default 42.3 multimedia codecs

    Sir,

    While installing the multimedia repos in 42.3, the instruction post indicated a "package switcher". I don't understand what the package switcher is. Will you offer some explanations?

    Thanks,

    Thom

    In YaST - Softwaremanager, select the Repository View. Select the Packman repo, next click on the "Switch packages ...." option on the top right,
    ° Appreciate my reply? Click the star and let me know why.

    just adding the packman repo where multimedia packages come from is not enough, you need to switch already installed packages to the ones from the packman repo
    the shortest example to getting multimedia working on 42.3 is
    Code:
    zypper ar -f ftp://packman.inode.at/suse/openSUSE_Leap_42.3/ packman
    zypper dup --from packman
    zypper in vlc-codecs libxine2-codecs
    the first line adds the multimedia repo
    the second line (zypper dup --from packman) does the "package switch"
    the third line (zypper in vlc-codecs libxine2-codecs) is needed because those two packages don't exist in OBS and need to be manually installed

    There is a one-click installer as well:

    I should say I have had issues with the one click NVIDIA driver installs on that page.

    Also, the guide on the forums:

    Yes, I have had trouble with the one-click, as well. Thanks for the response.

    Sir, I thought the vlc-codecs were not authorized. Have there been some changes?

    According to the instruction post p.2, videoLan repo was not to be used. Lends one to think the vlc codec is not to be used.
