    Hello and welcome!

    You didn't say what kind of videos you are wanting to play, but if it's those with restricted formats such as DVD movies, try this article for the info you will need to get your system setup for playing them:

    Restricted formats - openSUSE

    make sure you installed the following using oss, non-oss, packman and libdvdcss repositories
    players:
    xine
    mplayer
    vlc player
    codecs:
    transcode
    libdvdcss
    libdvdcss2
    w32codecs
    plugins:
    all pertaining to multimedia, video, audio, movies

    that does it usually for me ... all those, as far as i know are available as debian or rpm

    VLC will play any music or video that you need,try it first.
    libdvdcss2 will allow you to view restricted formats.
