I am having some problems, in the playing of music especially. I tell
the problem step by step as follows:

The currently enables repositories are as follows in my system:

4 repositories are enabled.

Video players I am having: Dragon player, VLC player, Kaffeine, Xine

Now the issues are the following and with the following file types.

1) Dragon player: Able to play and open the files of types: .mpg,
.mpeg, .flv, .mp4, .DAT -->> so no issues with the Dragon player

2) VLC player: Absolutely not working and not opening, only icon comes
for a moment but player doesn't start at all

3) Kaffeine:

--Kaffeine can start the song of the formats .DAT, .mpg & .mpeg but I
cannot move it back or ahead in time, and it doesn't show the time
(/length) of the song.
--Kaffine can start a video in .flv but with only audio - no video but
a blank screen comes!
--Kaffine can start a video in.mp4 but with only audio - no video but
a blank screen comes!

4) Xine:

--Xine can play .mpg, .mpeg & .DAT songs but without AUDIO
--Xine doesn't start the songs of .flv & .mp4 format

I didn't install openSUSE for all this problems, I know it is great
but what I do of these problems...?
