opensuse 13.2 KDE 64 bit, missing codecs

Hello, I just re-installed opensuse 13.2 KDE after having issues with opensuse 13.1, I am immediately noticing a few things.

  1. Graphics cards not loaded properly, I am yet to fix that but that’s not what this thread is about.

  2. Codecs, I tried MANY different methods mentioned online to install codecs, but my Kaffein and VLC both keep on crashing and VLC gives me:
    VLC could not decode the format “DIV3” (MS MPEG-4 Video v3)

any suggestions?

Kaffein crashlog:

Application: Kaffeine (kaffeine-xbu), signal: Segmentation faultUsing host libthread_db library "/lib64/libthread_db.so.1".

Please use code tags (# in the editor menu bar)

My guess is that you are mixing sources for the program/codecs. Please get all from packman if you need to use proprietary codecs.

If I’m not mistaken packman is #10 if you haven’t done it already do a dup with packman to get all the multimedia related paclages

sudo zypper dup --from 10

ps those are a lot of repositories, do you need all of them, too many repo’s can cause problems, and why does #9 the dvd point to http://opensuse-guide.org/repo/13.2/ ?

edit.
I’d say remove #9 but take care as then packman will become #9 so before doing a dup double check packman’s number

remove 17 and 18 as those are crippled multimedia apps and libs, 1 and 6 are the same repo’s remove one.

Thank you very much, dup from packman solved the problems. I will eliminate all unused repos.
