New to OpenSuse following having just installed OpenSuse 12.3 from disk supplied with Linux Format Magazine June2013. Would like to watch video on my Fujitsu laptop and am requesting assistance in how to download and install the VLC programme.

Hi Rob, welcome.

Next start the Software manager. A lot of changes will be proposed, accept these. Search for VLC (it’ll show now) and install it. Done.

You may also need to install the vlc-codecs package.
