Listening to Restricted Music Formats

Tutorial Level: Beginner

When listening to music, getting a notice that specific songs cannot be listened to due to restricted formats can become frustrating very quickly. The good news is that OpenSUSE has a package that un-restricts many of the most popular music formats. Although there is not much to installing this package, there are two options to select, depending on which Desktop Environment you use. There is a package for Gnome and another for KDE. Below are links for the 1-Click Installers for both the Gnome and KDE version of the Restricted Multimedia Formats package. Note that these packages are for version 11.0 of OpenSUSE.

Due to the nature of the 1-Click Installer, the installation process for this package is the easiest part. Simply follow step-by-step what YaST2 suggests for your and provide the information needed, and the package installer will do the rest. Once you have completed the installation, you will be able to listen to formats such as MP3, MPEG-4 and many others! Although a very simple tutorial, this package can make your music experience in OpenSUSE much smoother and more enjoyable!
