xvid codec


I downloaded the xvid codec from: PackMan :: Informationen zum Paket xvidcore, and the install was sucessful.

I’m trying to play an xvid file, and Kaffeine is saying it cannot play all file formats, would I like to install additional support. When I click yes, it asks me for additional repositories.

Any ideas?


You should not download single packages. Follow → this guide (mind your SuSE version) or see →this link (which might be a little more clearly laid out) for general multimedia-support including xvid.

Thank you so much.

I’m new to the linux system and that worked a treat.

That’s good to hear, kurtbarker - have fun with openSUSE!
