Hi,

I'm looking for a stable distro, and I've been an openSUSE user for long, but been having more and more issues. I've been thinking about purchasing SLED for my laptop I use for work, but I would also like to have additional codecs available, like i did from packman on openSUSE. Is there any way to obtain additional multimedia (vlc, codecs et al.)

Kind regards,

Hi and welcome to the SUSE forum ;)
I use fluendo codecs and videolan repo for VLC/libdvdcss2, but just having fluendo codec bundle should suffice.

What are you multimedia requirements? There is a SLE repo on packman, but at present they are trying to clean things up (moves too far ahead in the releases) to stabilize builds.

Hi Malcolm, good to see you here! You've been a help over the past couple of years on openSUSE too.

My multimedia requirements are audio (mp3, mp4 and flac)/video codecs, vlc, flash for streaming. That's about it.

So there shouldn't be a problem if I download and install from Packman? And which repo do you use for fluendo and vlc?

Kind regards,

Hi
Flash, well if I need it I just download the version from adobe and extract the libflashplayer.so and pop that into /usr/lib64/browser-plugins, else I resist it as much as possible....

Fluendo codecs are purchased from their website... covers all the general codecs you listed.

For vlc I use https://download.videolan.org/SuSE/SLE12

The packman repo, to be honest until they get some better version control, just add the videolan one to start with....

Oh great, I never knew you can purchase codecs this way, always thought they have to be bundled with the system, that being either mac or win. So basically i have to purchase the codec pack, and install the rpm. And this rpm works with sled 12?

Hi
Yes, no issues here, install one rpm and away you go...

Hello,

Maybe this will help? I managed to get it running on my then SLED 12 SP1 notebook https://www.suse.com/communities/blog/additional-multimedia-codec-support-sled-12/

To play a MP3 Audio file from a web page (with Firefox ESR 45@SLED12SP1):

you need ONEPLAY Codec Pack (from Fluendo) AND a special configuration in Firefox ESR 45:

1.) Please go to about:config
2.) and find media.gstreamer.enable-blacklist
3.) Set this to false

Test pages:
