Playing music files is only a part of SUSE Linux's abilities when it comes to multimedia. It's also a powerful movie player. It's capable of streaming video across the Internet, as well as playing video files stored on your hard disk or video CDs.
If you have a TV card installed in your PC, you can watch TV or grab video from sources such as VHS video cameras. Everything you need for competent multimedia playback is built right into SUSE Linux, as you'll learn in this chapter.
