I haven't tried recent SuSE builds, so I'm not sure how the package management system works, but basically you'll need to locate (in YaST, maybe?) and install the appropriate libraries for the video formats that you're trying to play.

The Ubuntu community actually came up with a couple of nice and easy installers (Automatix and EasyUbuntu) that do it all for you, and optionally install the appropriate plugins for Firefox so you can play embedded videos as well. Unfortunately, they won't work on SuSE since they use Debian packages.

I went through the list quickly, but I don't know which one I need, I didn't really see anything for avi's or dvds or anything

Most of them are there if you actually have the patience to read the descriptions carefully. ;)

Alternatively, just download and use VLC; you probably won't need anything else.

everytime I get this.....so I left it the last time, and when I come back my screen is black. I think oh, the screen is just doing what it normally does, I move the mouse and all and nothing happens, I have to press reset on the case....??

*VLC is not in my YasT? should it be?
