    Default Some YouTube videos won't play in Chromium ...

    Yesterday morning I upgraded from Leap 42.2 to 42.3 and now some videos won't play in Chromium under KDE. I suspect a lib got lost (or the new lib is incompatible) - can anyone advise what to add?

    The debug info from Chrome / YouTube is:

    Did you add the 42.3 Packman repo nd did you do the Vendor switch to it?

    It seems that packman disappeared from Yast - Community Repositories (at least from my Yast).

    I think it does not show community repos that you have already configured. Well, it does if you configured with a different name, but not if you already configured directly from that list of community repos.
    openSUSE Leap 15.1; KDE Plasma 5;

    Smile Re: Some YouTube videos won't play in Chromium ... FIXED

    I had packman multimedia & essentials before - so they were present in the new setup (I have a script which replaces version references in repos with the new version). I had assumed that the packages would have transferred on DUP to the correct repo ... duh. :-(

    Fixed now ...

    Thanks

    I did two new install of Tumbleweed (KDE and Gnome). Today and yesterday. When I want to add packman from yast, there is no packman.

    That is a different problem. Please start your own thread with this problem.

    you can add it manually there's even a repo file for TW (there isn't one for LEAP)
    Code:
    zypper ar -f https://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/misc/packman/suse/openSUSE_Tumbleweed/packman.repo
    I'm not sure how yast gets the list of community repo's as there are a lot of them you can open a bug report over at opensuse's bugzilla

    @hcvv advised @jetojedno to add packman.
    I add to @hcvv advice that is better to add Parkman from command line because it seems that it is not working from yast.
    The post with my two new install was a response to another one.
    That's all. I do not want to start new thread or open a bug report.
