Dragon Player - No Quicktime / MOV video

Dragon Player and Gwenview have stopped being able to play quicktime video (*.mov) files. I can hear the audio, but no video displays. Other file types appear to play fine. Help on getting this back functioning would be appreciated.

Below is the terminal output for playing an .MOV file in dragon:

post the output of

zypper lr -d

afaik dragon uses gstreamer via the phonon backend, there is a bad peace of advice on
http://opensuse-guide.org/codecs.php
that says users should install phonon-backend-vlc and remove phonon-backend-gstreamer
well phonon-backend-vlc is broken and phonon-backend-gstreamer works so if you have the latter install the former

zypper output below. FYI, I added some repo’s to get libHAL so that Hulu would play in firefox, and also was trying Chrome for the same thing. I have phonon-backend-gstreamer installed, not vlc.

repo #3 is for leap the propper for tw is
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/KDE3/openSUSE_Tumbleweed/
I know in theory tw and factory are the same but repo #2 should point to
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/twotaps:/branches:/home:/Overman79:/Utils/openSUSE_Tumbleweed/
I don’t think zypper can modify a repo’s URL you need to use yast to do that or remove the one’s pointing to LEAP (Factory) and readd the proper ones
repo #5 should be disabled especially on tw which is a rolling distro

zypper mr -d 5

do a dup to packment to make sure all multimedia comes from packman

zypper dup --from 4

Followed the instructions per above regarding the repo’s.

larry@Laptop:/usr/lib/mozilla$ sudo zypper dup --from 4
root's password:
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...
Computing distribution upgrade...

Nothing to do.
larry@Laptop:/usr/lib/mozilla$

Unfortunately nothing’s changed. Same results from Dragon so far.

I have no idea how tw would behave with packages for LEAP remove the wrong repo’s then redownload/reinstall their packages

don’t forget to delete gstramer cache
~/.cache/gstreamer-1.0

FYI tw is cutting edge so bugs are to be expected specially when you mix distro’s
