in August I installed Tumbleweed and finally got everything working. Everything? Not quite: as usual after installing a new Linux, Videos don’t play. So far, I got around without, but now I’m really missing it. So, I spent an evening searching around, but still couldn’t find out the correct repository name.
From my last installations I know that for some copyright reason the corresponding repository isn’t installed automatically. After some reading I found out (and remembered) it is called “packman”.
After some more reading, I learned about a new layout of the packman repository(in four parts instead of one) and I got a list of mirrors at http://packman.links2linux.de/mirrors
Also, thanks to this forum, I found the list of packages at opensuse: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/
However, my quite straightforward question wasn’t answered in either of these places:
What is the correct URL of the packman repository to enter in YAST (for Tumbleweed)?
Instead, I have one more question now: Do I need to add four repositories (and what are their names) for simply playing video files in VLC and Kaffeine?
Thanks for your answers and for all the answers you gave in the past which helped me a lot!
PS: as a side question: Why isn’t there a button in Yast where I can browse for the more common repositories by category, e.g. Multimedia/video/codecs instead of searching for URL’s in the net?
