WMA MP4 files wont play MP3s play Ok

I’ve tried many different things but nothing has helped. I’m afraid I’ve tried to much and I don’t know how to back out or move forward without making things worse. Has anyone any suggestions? OpenSuSE 11.2 on Dell Latitude D830.

Sorry I meant to add 64 Bit OS. Thanks

Have a look at http://en.opensuse.org/Restricted_Formats - this will help
you understand some of the issues you’re having. While WMA MP4 files
aren’t specifically discussed, the issues discussed about licensed
technologies and the like would still apply as WMA is a proprietary
format and is DRM-encumbered in some cases.

Actually it might be best at this point if we see what repos you have, from a terminal do

zypper lr -d

post result. Because if you get this wrong, it doesn’t matter what you do…

Tell if you you use kde or gnome too

I apologize for the delay. Is there a way to attach a file if that’s even permitted? Here is the text but it’s hard to read. Thanks for looking at it. I greatly appreciate it.

Great news for me anyway, WMA file play now. MP4 is another matter I’ll have to be patient with. Hopefully not to long.

Please post again

zypper lr -d

Tell me if you use kde or gnome
