MPlayer - The Movie Player

I don't think opensuse comes out of the box with gcc so you can compile mplayer from source, see if yum or whatever suse uses has a listing in the depository for mplayer or you should be able to at least find an rpm for it

otherwise just compile it from source code, just beware you will probably have to install all the apps needed to compile C source code first

YaST/Modules/Software Management - openSUSE

opensuse uses yast, yast is a package manager, it allows you to add or remove software that's already compiled and ready to run, I don't know if mplayer exists in any of the opensuse repositories though, should be easy enough to check by using yast, it should have a list

Install the GStreamer codecs and also get VLC Media Player.

I recommend Ubuntu for a new user friendly Linux distro, not OpenSuse.
