I have messed up my openSUSE Leap 42.1 system and some problems have started arising now. Don’t know what has happened.
Deleted some repositories and added few… (don’t remember what did I do)
Presently, I am not gettting any sound in SMPlayer but Mplayer plays the media file appropriately with sound.
Verified it in Pulse Audio Volume Control.
This does not show SMPlayer while playing a file but it does identify MPlayer.

Summary : Advanced general-purpose multimedia player
mpv is a movie player based on MPlayer and mplayer2. It supports a wide variety
of video file formats, audio and video codecs, and subtitle types.
Distribution: openSUSE Leap 42.1
Again was unsuccessful… Did few more experiments…
Finally was tired of my own experiments.
(Admit it, I shouldn’t have did my own experiments. Should have come here and requested for solving the problem)
Now I will try as you suggest, and report it back here.
The problem was not in SMPlayer. SMPlayer is just a graphical user interface (frontend) for mpv or MPlayer.
You had the version of mpv from the openSUSE repos installed, this might have been incompatible with the latest ffmpeg/libav* libraries from Packman. It has now been replaced by the version from Packman though.
Your MPlayer likely did come from Packman in the first place (it is not included in the distribution), so it worked.
