opensuse 13.1 and wmv files

hi all:

i am trying to get wmv files working on opensuse 13.1 by following the opensuse wiki page:

https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Playing_wmv_in_Firefox

but there is no “mplayer-plugin” any more (it seems to be defunct long time ago, as google search results) but i do see “mplayer2” and few other “mplayer2” related codes. but those codes seem to conflict with mplayer1.1 that came with the opensuse:

#### YaST2 conflicts list - generated 2014-08-03 12:59:10 ####

mplayer2-as-mplayer-20130427-3.15.i586 conflicts with MPlayer provided by MPlayer-1.1.1.r37239-1.2.i586

     ] do not install mplayer2-as-mplayer-20130427-3.15.i586

     ] Following actions will be done:
deinstallation of MPlayer-1.1.1.r37239-1.2.i586
deinstallation of gmplayer-1.1.1.r37239-1.2.i586
deinstallation of moviethumbnailer-1.6.0-1.3.noarch


if i am reading right, the option 2 will have mplayer2 replace mplayer1? if so, why not just simply deprecated mplyaer1 when opensuse13.1 was crafted?

The page you are following is horribly outdated.

Please take a look here;

You will need the propritary codacs Since openSUSE is open no propritary stuff ships with the OS you have to install separately

Here is the easiest way
