uh, that’s a nice link for 11.1, hence, this is a forum for pre-release. I had no problems with the exact same videos in 11.1. It’s only with 11.2 that I’m having this issue. As I said before, the video plays, but no sound. I’m pretty sure they were working with KDE 3.5.2 under 11.2. I’m back to GNOME now though. They do play with audio using gxine.
I don’t use gnome, except occasionally in my Fedora Box and even then I would never used Totem, actually I removed it. SMplayer always, same in openSUSE.
FYI: I know exactly what part of the forum we are in
I’m not running Fedora, hence, an openSUSE forum under pre-release beta. That’s nice that you don’t use totem. Totem is the default player for GNOME. Can you offer any advice for totem with 11.2 other than you use smplayer with Fedora?
I’ve read no official notice of it yet, so I do not know if it should be used yet, but I note all the mirrors have it now.
Packman used to package a totem that used the libxine engine, but they do not do so any more. When I went to the totem home page: Totem I noted that totem uses gstreamer.
Hence if you have not done so, you could replace any of your 11.2 Novell/SuSE-GmbH packaged gstreamer apps with Packman packaged ones from factory or from the 11.2 repository for Packman, and see if that helps. Its possible you may also wish to install ffmpeg, libffmpeg and w32codec-all, as those provide many codecs either directly, or thru their dependencies, although I do not know if totem/gstreamer uses them, as I always use the xine engine and have no gstreamer experience.
