Forget the file you downloaded. Follow the guide I posted!

You can get a one-click install from Opensuse Build Service or through Yast if the packman repository is enabled.

You have installed Flash, haven’t you?

.flv is playable in VLC, Xine and SMplayer.
SMplayer is my choice overall as its a decent frontend to Mplayer.
