FLV video files do not play on VLC player in opensuse 11.4

Below is a dump of a opensuse newbie quest to find a solution by googling

I think the solution to all my video problems is codecs-gnome.ymp but i will still have to confirm this

Confirmed !! the above file installs all the required files you need to find videos and all the codecs . It may give you a warning on some files . I installed them anyway. 

Do you have compiz enabled. If yes, then open VLC, goto Settings->Preferences and check the Advanced options checkbox at botton of the settings window. Now expand Video from left column and click on output modules. In the drop menu on right side, select X11 video output. Click Save button and restart VLC. Check now with the FLV files.

does not work

after all the googling the below file just popped up on my search and it stared to install the files needed to play the videos

http://opensuse-community.org/codecs-gnome.ymp
An easy way to install a selection of popular multimedia codecs, including:
* Flash
* Java
* Encrypted DVD
* Extra XINE Codecs, for DivX/Xvid etc. (libxine1)
* Win 32 Codecs (w32codec-all)

...as well as have the option to install other additional software that might not be shipped with openSUSE.

Click "Customise" on the next screen to get the option to select more software.
