Hello, yesterday i downloaded and installed suse linux enterprise linux 10 with KDE and Gnome. i can watch videos on youtube. i can play java games i can play flac files. havent tryed mp3 files. i cannot play dvd's in totem movie player. what is the deal with linux and legal issues with certain codecs? if i buy a computer and install windows i can stick in a dvd and play it in windows media player. if i brought a mac i could play a dvd out of the box. so why cant i play a dvd out of the box on linux? suse enterprise linux is $50 a year. surely for that price they could buy a dvd decoder from a companie and bundle it with the OS? same with mp3,m4a etc. i may ring up novell and ask them about this. suse linux enterprise 10 is a really great OS. loved it right away. at some point i plan on getting a laptop and run suse enterprise linux on it. i dont mind paying the $50 or roughly £25 a year. i just want to know what the deal with codecs is and how to solve it. also it would be nice if it updated java by itself.
