To Get XINE

One of the not so sweet problems I had was being able to watch a DVD on my SUSE Linux Laptop. The issue was mainly that the DVD decoder was not installed. Also for SUSE 10.2 under GNOME, the underlying technology for TOTEM was gstreamer – which by all accounts (google anyway) not so good. I can confirm this.

Best thing to do is just XINE – dont bother with TOTEM – cant see the benefit anyway.

This fellow has very kindly put everything together – so just visit his nice site. It all works I can tell you.
