[packman] 12.2-64 VLC lacks of wma-support

There was an incompatibilty between vlc (and others) and ffmpeg 1.1.
So ffmpeg has been downgraded to 1.0.1 in packman.
With ffmpeg 1.0.1 wma works fine for me again.

I guess your problem is, that the update-applet or zypper don't  downgrade 
packages automatically. You have to do that by hand.
So, open Yast->Softwaremanagement, right-click on the ffmpeg package, which 
should show its version in red, and select "update unconditionally" (Unbedingt 
aktualisieren). If a conflict dialog appears select the options to downgrade 
all of ffmpeg's packages (libav*, libpostproc, libswscale, libswresample).

Hope that helps!

Kind regards,
