    Yes, I know, but the OP asked again, so I answered again.

    But I promise not to create an eternal loop out of this.

    that's because it's not terribly obvious - at least compared to the old method:

    Code:
    localhost:/home/xxxxxx # zypper addrepo --refresh --priority 90 http://ftp.fau.de/packman/suse/openSUSE_Tumbleweed/
    If only one argument is used, it must be a URI pointing to a .repo file.
    addrepo (ar) [OPTIONS] <URI> <ALIAS>
    addrepo (ar) [OPTIONS] <FILE.repo>
    
    Add a repository to the system. The repository can be specified by its URI or can be read from
    specified .repo file (even remote).
    
      Command options:
    
    -r, --repo <FILE.repo>      Just another means to specify a .repo file to read.
    -c, --check                 Probe URI.
    -C, --no-check              Don't probe URI, probe later during refresh.
    -p, --priority <PRIORITY>   Set priority of the repository. Default: 90
    -k, --keep-packages         Enable RPM files caching. Default: false
    -K, --no-keep-packages      Disable RPM files caching.
    -g, --gpgcheck              Enable GPG check for this repository.
        --gpgcheck-strict       Enable strict GPG check for this repository.
        --gpgcheck-allow-unsigned
                                Short hand for '--gpgcheck-allow-unsigned-repo
                                --gpgcheck-allow-unsigned-package'.
        --gpgcheck-allow-unsigned-repo
                                Enable GPG check but allow the repository metadata to be unsigned.
        --gpgcheck-allow-unsigned-package
                                Enable GPG check but allow installing unsigned packages from this
                                repository.
    -G, --no-gpgcheck           Disable GPG check for this repository.
        --default-gpgcheck      Use the global GPG check setting defined in /etc/zypp/zypp.conf. This is
                                the default.
    -n, --name <NAME>           Set a descriptive name for the repository.
    -e, --enable                Enable a disabled repository. Default: true
    -d, --disable               Disable the repository (but don't remove it).
    -f, --refresh               Enable auto-refresh of the repository. Default: false
    -F, --no-refresh            Disable auto-refresh of the repository.
    
      Legacy options:
    
    -t, --type                  The repository type is always autodetected. This option is ignored.
    
    localhost:/home/xxxxxx # zypper dist-upgrade --allow-vendor-change --allow-downgrade --from packman

    Same problem here since I've accepted vendor change upgrade suggestion last week. I just switched back to Packman but it doesn't work since it has libavcodec58_91 too. So, after read this thread, I've installed libavcodec57 from Packman, even without remove libavcodec58_91, and works fine. Firefox is able to play H.264/MP4 again.

    Thx guys!

    If you have problems with Firefox (which currently doesn't support the latest ffmpeg/libavcodec), install libavcodec57 for now, a fix will be coming with the next update.
    (https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...30#post2946730)

    You may have to uninstall libavcodec58 manually (if it's installed from the standard repos) to avoid problems, as especially Firefox will still try to use it. Although, it normally should get removed automatically, as it is no longer available.

    That is indeed a mistake of Karl. When you compaire with the Leap 15.2 one, you will see that the alias is missing (and that is also waht the error message tells you):
    Code:
    zypper addrepo --refresh --priority 90 http://ftp.fau.de/packman/suse/openSUSE_Tumbleweed/ packman
    I will go to the other thread and inform him.

    I think that you can learn from this incident that you should always check a command given by somebody. Check what it will do with the information in the man page and your sutuation. In the end you are responsible for what happens on the system and you can not claim any disaster happening because you blindly copied "some command from the internet". Even if it is given by the very trusted people here. They can also make mistakes.

    With the contents of the original post being pretty small I did not create a new wiki page and link to it. This is a bad idea, because necessary updates and discussions render the thread unwieldy and cumbersome to modify while wiki easily accommodates changes and maintains a history. Sorry for taking a shortcut.

    Sure, that works. But on the other hand the proper codec which works is:

    Code:

    You do need to additionally install libavcodec57 currently for Firefox, because it doesn't support libavcodec58_91 yet, it just doesn't find it.
    But that should be fixed with the next Firefox update, which should be in the next Tumbleweed snapshot.

    hey, so how do I install libavcodec57 if it isn't avaliable? I cannot downgrade the libavcodec58_91 to libavcodec57 right? trying to install libavcodec57 gives me this:

    No provider of 'libavcodec57' found.

    That may depend on what videos you try to play exactly, or what other addons you may have installed.

    You certainly do need it for full codec support though.
    (otherwise this thread and the bug report wouldn't exist in the first place).
