Add Packman to your Installation repositories in YaST, search for 
kaffeine and set the state of the Package to update. Now YaST will 
install everything you need to play DVD's (CD's you sould be able to 
play even with the SUSE included software). For commercial, css 
protected DVD's you additional need to follow the instructions on 
You also can try different Players like MPlayer or VLC, but for 
Video-DVD's IMHO xine based players do the best job.
