    Default Codecs for ARM

    Installed Tumbleweed aarch64 on Raspberry Pi4 and it flies. Would like to play video files via smplayer. Are codecs for common formats available?
    Thanks in advance.

    Thank you. That's a start. I still don't get sound from Youtube although the video works well. As for playing any videos saved on drives, neither mplayer nor vlc function. I have run all the recommended software upgrades which do have some unresolved problems. Would you know of a Pi4 guide specifically aimed at openSUSE? I joined the Pi4 forum, but have not been able to post. In any case the forum is aimed at mostly Ubuntu users. OpenSUSE is not even mentioned as an option on the Raspberry web page.

    Do you get sound from any other apps ?

    Have you investigated pavucontrol turning?

    Thank you for reactivating my frozen brain, The Raspberry Pi4 I am configuring is not SUSE friendly, and I have been stuck in Ubuntu Land and their methods. Not friendly is an understatement. SUSE is not even mentioned on their page. I now have music. Video next.
