play avi-files in 11.4

hello, I just installed 11.4 and its working like a dream, only I cant seem to play .avi files. does anyone know a solution for this?

Thanks in advance, Frank

Have you installed the respective codecs from Packmans Factory repository?

Index of /suse/factory

Install the package list from here - or as much as is available
Multi-media and Restricted Format Installation Guide

Thank you! after adding the Packman factory repo the avi files can be played.

Thanks, Frank:)

best to stick with packman 11.3 rpm’s for 11.4 at the moment as there are still a number of rpm’s not yet available for packman factory (like vlc)

Well, I got the avi-files to play with the factory repo, only thing is, the sound doesnt play. Am I missing a codec or plugin?

thanks in advance,


Probably you just need to check the mixer settings
Check this too
SDB:Audio troubleshooting - openSUSE

I noticed that the problem only is with kaffeine, changing the mixer settings doesn’t help. In dragon player everything works fine. Is there a way to have my avi-files startup standard with dragonplayer?

grtz, Frank

I already figured that one out myself, sorry for the question. Tnx for the help.

grtz, Frank
