    There are 4 multimedia packs issued by SuSE, available through YaST. You should download and install those, then your multimedia issues should be fixed.

    You also need to install libxine and if you want to get rid of the warning screen install the xine-ui using YaST. The w32codec will allow to view Window's media as well as quicktime movies.

    Have a look at the DVD panel in Xine help. There are some requirements mentioned there that need to be met. Your Xine application needs to 'see' the DVD drive.
    "There needs to be a symbolic link from /dev/dvd to your device node of your dvd drive."

    Also, I had a problem with a LIVE AID Concert DVD (it would nor play), but a movie DVD and another Music DVD played OK. (I'm battling an audio sync problem currently)
