When openSUSE Linux will offer full support to the WebM?

Fedora Linux already supports the WebM (https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Flash#YouTube_and_WebM_support), now we just need openSUSE Linux, offer full support to the WebM.

About the WebM:

Hard to say - given that there are currently packages that are being
removed due to a lack of a maintainer, it would probably require someone
offering to maintain the packages.

Since it contains ffmpeg content, if it’s done, it will be a packman
Mplayer just needs to built with libvpx, might pay to ask on the
packman IRC/Mailing list. They also package moovida, but it needs a
newer version which isn’t available yet.

In the case of Fedora Linux:

"From June 1 this year (2010) you can run the videos on youtube webm with html5. To be able to use that you simply install a browser that uses gstreamer tags in video and audio html5. Examples include the epiphany and midori and ardor in gtk and qt4 rekonq in (these were not tested but if they operate will need to have the phonon configured to use the gstreamer). In fedora 12 is necessary to install the update webkitgtk. And in all cases the gstreamer-plugins-good and gstreamer-plugins-bad-free must be at a minimum, the update of the day June 1, 2010 to have the support webm. To the experienced webmaster with html5 use this test page: Sample WebM Video or own youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=(http://dolphy-tech.net/log/?p=47)?

I apologize to everyone, because I had not noticed before, but now I see that support for the WebM, is already in openFATE (https://features.opensuse.org/309589#).

Excuse me for anything.

Thank you all!
