I don't watch videos much at all on the computer, only YouTube. Rhythmbox does me though but banshee can play both music and video media.

Rhythmbox for my music, so far I like Mplayer for video, but haven't really decided yet. I still install it mostly out of habit as it was the easiest for me to get working properly a couple years back.

The Banshee Sean mentioned didn't look bad either.

New versions of Banshee support Amazon and you can purchase music. Ubuntu has Ubuntu One built into Rhythmbox for mainstream music.

Oh I forgot Doc, you're using openSUSE. You could always try new versions of Banshee with Amazon support, of which they provide a one-click install.

You probably need codecs then. Look for them on Pacman or use the Webpin option in YaST. Gstreamer packages.

Yea I think you may have to switch to a non US repository to get the codecs DD. Suse used to be pretty vague on how to get codecs, they aren't exactly legal in the US or encumbered by license issues.
