Thread: Multimedia Guide for openSUSE Tumbleweed no longer available? My system can't play web videos again

    Default Multimedia Guide for openSUSE Tumbleweed no longer available? My system can't play web videos again

    Hi Folks,

    There used to have a Multimedia Guide for openSUSE Tumbleweed here sticky on the top, but now it's missing. I used to copy the command code in it to enable multimedia play on web browser once my tumbleweed system got updated and couldn't play web videos. And once again, after the latest update (openSUSE Tumbleweed 20200714), my system is no longer able to play web videos on browser. The old command code I copied from past Multimedia Guide for openSUSE Tumbleweed as follows no longer works at this time:

    Code:
    sudo zypper install -f libxine2-codecs ffmpeg-4  dvdauthor gstreamer-plugins-bad gstreamer-plugins-bad-orig-addon gstreamer-plugins-base  gstreamer-plugins-good gstreamer-plugins-good-extra gstreamer-plugins-libav gstreamer-plugins-qt5 gstreamer-plugins-ugly gstreamer-plugins-ugly-orig-addon vlc smplayer x264 x265 vlc-codecs vlc-codec-gstreamer ogmtools libavcodec58
    Any suggestions?

    Anyway, you could use this guide...

    or this "how to" thread (in same forum)....

    I have the same issue as OP.

    All the codecs are installed from packman and have been since my initial install. Since I updated yesterday, videos won't play.

    Code:
    richard@andromeda-ascendant repos.d
    >>> zypper lr                                                                                                                           ✓

    More details please.
    What videos won't play in which application(s)?

    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.

    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.

    Firefox, so that was right on the nail.

    Yeah, FireFox is exactly the case. And removing libavcodec58 as well as installing libavcodec57 work!

    Code:
    sudo zypper install -f libxine2-codecs ffmpeg-4  dvdauthor gstreamer-plugins-bad gstreamer-plugins-bad-orig-addon gstreamer-plugins-base  gstreamer-plugins-good gstreamer-plugins-good-extra gstreamer-plugins-libav gstreamer-plugins-qt5 gstreamer-plugins-ugly gstreamer-plugins-ugly-orig-addon vlc smplayer x264 x265 vlc-codecs vlc-codec-gstreamer ogmtools libavcodec58
    Hoping the fix for firefox will drop soon.

    But separate Q - with the old TW guide gone - will the above still be relevant once we have added the packman repo?

    This method as described here has always fulfilled my requirements since at least before openSUSE 10.
