hi im a little familiar with opensuse..but when i formatted my pc after the installation of opensuse i realized i missed all the audio and video codecs...now i cant even listen to mp3s let alone watching videos...i remember there was a forum post explaining how to install all the audio and video -well mostly- codecs..could you explain how i can install audio and video codecs?
Just wondering where or how to install all the audio codecs? I installed a music player called clementine and can't play anything because it keeps spamming me with GStreamer plugin not found. I already installed gmstreamer but still the same problem, for windows I always used klite codecs, is there an equivalent installer of that for linux?
Is there any chance I can load binary codecs on 64bit arch linux ? I have few .dat files that works great under 32bit windows xp, with smplayer (after downloading codecs), but on 64bit Linux, I got twisted image.
I downloaded all binary codecs for win32 here,
And essential elf64 libs here
Both archive was extracted to /usr/lib/codecs
From output of strace, seems /usr/lib/codecs wasn't loaded.
I installed opensuse 11.2 kde and added packman and the kde codecs but still, amarock or kaffeine couldn't play my .m4a files.
Can somebody please tell me step by step to play these files?
I really like OS but if it doesn't play music...
So, Canonical has licensed H.264 for its partners. Is it a good thing? Should more distros strike deals that allow end users to play DVDs, watch Flash movies and more out of the box, or is it more important that we take a united stand in the name of Free Software and support free codecs like Theora?
