Common, you have been here for years, you should know this.
There are a lot of people who might not know that who'll get frustrated at this sort of thing.
I was not talking about them, but about you. You are not new, you should know this. The situation is basically the same in decades.
New people are directed by old people here or at the forum at the instructions on how to get multimedia working. I remember the forum has a sticky post in the multimedia area prominently explaining how to setup multimedia.
You can, for instance, google "opensuse multimedia wiki page" and find things.
Mainly the first one links to several others:
https://en.opensuse.org/Codecs https://www.opensuse-community.org/ https://opensuse-community.org/Restricted_formats https://en.opensuse.org/Restricted_formats https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Install_Packman_codecs https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Sound_concepts https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Audio_troubleshooting
And don't forget the one I mentioned at the forum: https://forums.opensuse.org/showthread.php/536314-Multimedia-Guide-for-openSUSE-Leap-15-1
The 15.2 one hasn't being written yet.
