SDB:Installing codecs from Packman repositories

Jump to: navigation, search

You need these packages from Packman to play most music and video:

  • ffmpeg
  • gstreamer-plugins-bad
  • gstreamer-plugins-libav
  • gstreamer-plugins-ugly
  • libavcodec58
  • libavdevice58
  • libavfilter7
  • libavformat58
  • libavresample4
  • libavutil56
  • vlc-codecs

You can install them using Zypper, opi or Yast.

Zypper

If you have not already done so, use the following commands to add all of the third-party Packman repository (Packman Essentials is included), according to your installed OpenSUSE version:

Tumbleweed
sudo zypper addrepo -cfp 90 https://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/misc/packman/suse/openSUSE_Tumbleweed/ packman
Leap
sudo zypper addrepo -cfp 90 'https://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/misc/packman/suse/openSUSE_Leap_$releasever/' packman

Then, install the desired codecs by first refreshing your local repository database and allowing vendor change for the required packages (consider reading Vendor change):

sudo zypper refresh
sudo zypper dist-upgrade --from packman --allow-vendor-change
sudo zypper install --from packman ffmpeg gstreamer-plugins-bad gstreamer-plugins-libav gstreamer-plugins-ugly libavcodec58 libavdevice58 libavfilter7 libavformat58 libavresample4 libavutil56 vlc-codecs

opi (OBS Package Installer)

opi works on both Leap and Tumbleweed:

sudo zypper install opi
opi packman
