I also tried to use another link to install the codecs. http://opensuse-community.org/Restricted_Formats/10.3 as suggested by Benji W
this pathetic problem again!
I have had it with every install of OpenSUSE since I can remember.
I installed the http://opensuse-community.org/Restricted_Formats/11.1 - the http://opensuse-community.org/codecs-kde.ymp install. Nothing changed. No sound form Firefox (e.g. YouTube sound). All other audio programmes work.
Anyone got a 'new' solution I also tried:
Sometimes things are not installed correctly. When that happens, you will find that you cannot play mp3, mp4, wmv using totem. At that point key to making it work correctly may not be so obvious. Here is what I did to get things working after the default install attempt went badly.
The key was to DISABLE all repositories but the packman and libdvdcss repositories... then remove all of the gstreamer packages and totem. Then do the install using the link from http://opensuse-community.org/Restricted_Formats/11.1. After this, re-enable all of repositories that you disabled before and then install totem. At that point everything works.
