OpenSUSE -Video streams in browsers

Adobe flash player
# zypper install flash-player
To get support for various multimedia streams in Firefox and other browsers, install the package xine-browser-plugin ('Packman Repository' required).
Installing multimedia plugin in the terminal:
# zypper install xine-browser-plugin

 Google Voice and Video Chat Google provide voice and video chat with Google services on GNU/Linux with a browser plugin. Download the RPM files for OpenSUSE here:
Dependencias para Google Talk en OpenSUSE Cuando intentamos instalarlo encuentra una dependencia, que se encuentra dentro del paquete openssl.
Si ya está instalado,  proceder con los comandos dados líneas abajo

Tras descargar este último (incluyendo también la versión de 32 bits si nuestro operativo es de 64), en lugar de instalar directamente el complemento de vídeo hay que crear dos enlaces simbólicos, porque a saber qué criterio de nombrado habrán utilizado en Google y por eso no encuentra la biblioteca que procede. Las órdenes son:
sudo ln -s /lib/ /lib/
sudo ln -s /lib/ /lib/
Ahora sí, podemos proceder a instalar el RPM, ignorando el error de dependencias que se muestre. Tras reiniciar el navegador ya deberíamos poder configurar los parámetros de la cámara :D
Tuve que instalarlo primero en Chrome y después volver a probar desde Firefox. Tras este segundo intento ya funcionó sin problemas en ambos.
MPlayer plugin
or YAST install: rpm w32codec-all
YAST install: rpm kaffeine-mozilla
Moonlight (pendant of M$ Silverlight)
Check the list of supported operating systems and architectures

1. Watching the Olympics

If you want to watch the Olympics you will need to use the Moonlight 3 Preview as opposed to Moonlight 2. If you just want Moonlight 2, proceed to the next step. If you want the Olympics, click here.

2. Select the architecture:

3. Download the plugin

When installing the Novell Moonlight plugin, Firefox may prevent the installation and present you with an information bar:

To continue the installation click Edit Options... on the information bar and add this site to Allowed Sites, then click on the appropriate installer again.

  MPlayer is a movie player for Linux (runs on many other Unices, and non-x86 CPUs, see the documentation). MPlayer plays most MPEG, VOB, AVI, Ogg/OGM, VIVO, ASF/WMA/WMV, QT/MOV/MP4, FLI, RM, NuppelVideo, YUV4MPEG, FILM, RoQ, PVA files, supported by many native, XAnim, and Win32 DLL codecs. You can watch VideoCD, SVCD, DVD, 3ivx, DivX 3/4/5 and even WMV movies, too (without the avifile library).
  Another great feature of MPlayer is the wide range of supported output drivers.
It works with X11, Xv, DGA, OpenGL, SVGAlib, fbdev, AAlib, DirectFB, but you can use GGI, SDL (and this way all their drivers), VESA (on every VESA compatible card, even without X11!) and some low level card-specific drivers (for Matrox, 3Dfx and ATI), too!
  Most of them support software or hardware scaling, so you can enjoy movies in fullscreen. MPlayer supports displaying through some hardware MPEG decoder boards, such as the Siemens DVB, DXR2 and DXR3/Hollywood+.
  MPlayer has an onscreen display (OSD) for status information, nice big antialiased shaded subtitles and visual feedback for keyboard controls. European/ISO 8859-1,2 (Hungarian, English, Czech, etc), Cyrillic and Korean fonts are supported along with 12 subtitle formats (MicroDVD, SubRip, OGM, SubViewer, Sami, VPlayer, RT, SSA, AQTitle, JACOsub, PJS and our own: MPsub). DVD subtitles (SPU streams, VOBsub and Closed Captions) are supported as well.
