If you have not done so already, you need to install Totem from the YaST Software Management Application. When you search for totem and select the main file, many other applications (at least eight I think, but perhaps more) will get installed and that is alright. Normally, if you use GNOME you will get it automatically, but not if you load only KDE. The Totem program once installed is just called Movie Player and it can be selected in Firefox if you elect to download the movie file. I have a bash script that can be used to check your multimedia setup that you can find here:
Now the link you provided did not readily show me a link for a video stream, but only fixed pictures to see, but if you really know how this page works, you will want to use Totem for the live stream. Once you have the right stuff loaded, have a look at this link:
I neglected to mention that I am using KDE desktop. Sorry.
In Yast I am presented with many choices for totem and all of the choices are for Gnome.
I just want to be certain that with KDE I should install totem and totem-browser-plugin
Regarding the comment about the stream. On my wife’s WinXP using windows media player and choosing, for example “80 atTruckee” I see streaming video of the traffic. I also note some of the choices return nothing so I guess those cameras don’t work.
I still need to digest the rest of the info you sent but wanted to make sure totem should be installed on KDE.
