Re: Fedsetupguides, Fedy

Try to install gstreamer1-libav, phonon-backend-gstreamer, phonon-backend-vlc.
Code:
sudo dnf install gstreamer1-libav, phonon-backend-gstreamer, phonon-backend-vlc

Testing that H.264 format works

Access the following page to see if H.264 is enabled: Youtube HTML5 video test
You can test some test videos from this site: HTML5 test videos

Re: Fedsetupguides, Fedy

If your problem is flash-player related:

Code:
sudo rpm -ivh http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe-release/adobe-release-x86_64-1.0-1.noarch.rpm
sudo rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux
sudo dnf install flash-plugin
Does your hardware allow to play h.264 and MPEG=4AAC ?

Re: Fedsetupguides, Fedy

Please try to download the following video to your $HOME/Downloads directory.

https://www.quirksmode.org/html5/tests/video.html
...
H.264/MP4
https://www.quirksmode.org/html5/vid...buck_bunny.mp4

Go to $HOME/Downloads.
Code:
wget -c https://www.quirksmode.org/html5/videos/big_buck_bunny.mp4
Right click (right mouse button) on the file, "open with" and you see the applications you can open the video file with.

--> choose Vlc Media Player

Does the file open?

Hi Thom
Received your Saturday post and off I went:

[jeb@localhost ~]$ sudo dnf install gstreamer1-libav, phonon-backend-gstreamer, phonon-backend-vlc
[sudo] password for jeb:
Last metadata expiration check: 0:04:54 ago on Mon 02 Oct 2017 10:17:31 AM +07.
No package gstreamer1-libav, available.
No package phonon-backend-gstreamer, available.
Error: Unable to find a match

Then going here: Youtube HTML5 video test (http://youtube.com/html5)
HTMLVideoElement
H.264
WebM VP8
Media Source Extensions
MSE & H.264
MSE & WebM VP9
The HTML5 player is currently used when possible.
All 7 have a checkmark. I assume Yes

Then here: (http://www.quirksmode.org/html5/tests/video.html)

H.264/MP4 played thru but this showed at top
<video controls>
<source src="../videos/big_buck_bunny.mp4" type="video/mp4">
<p>Your browser does not support H.264/MP4.</p>
</video>
Both WebM and Ogg/Theora played thru as well.
​​​​​​​Then your Sunday post:

I couldn’t place:
wget -c https://www.quirksmode.org/html5/vid...buck_bunny.mp4
into Home/d/ls but I found:
https://www.quirksmode.org/html5/tests/video.html

in which I found:
HTML5 tests – video:
This page tests the <video> tag for various OSs.
For H.264/MP4, FF 4.0b11 says NO

??????????

One item:
I don’t have a problem with video or music(also .mp4) online, only when I try to play my files.

Re: Fedsetupguides, Fedy

What do you mean by "I couldn't place:" ?

In your home directory there should exist a subdirectory "Downloads".
I suggest that you download the file to this dir.

Open terminal/console and enter on the command line:
Code:
cd $HOME/Downloads
Have you installed wget? If not, do:
Code:
sudo dnf install wget
On the command line do:
Code:
wget -c https://www.quirksmode.org/html5/videos/big_buck_bunny.mp4
"-c" tells wget to download the file to the actual/current directory.

I choose this video to test your installation. Because it should open with VLC and VLC should play it.

Open your file browser (dolphin, nautilus, whatever, ...)
Then go to <your home directory>/Downloads.
It's a directory in your Home directory where downloads use to be saved.
Find the downloaded file big_buck_bunny.mp4, right click, "open with", choose VLC.

Does the downloaded file (downloaded to your harddisk) play ?

I'm NOT talking about your browser, whether your browser plays it.
You already verified your browser installation on https://www.quirksmode.org/html5/tests/video.html.
On this page ONLY your browser is tested.
NOT the applications on your computer.

Therefor I want you to test the application installation on your computer by downloading a file to your harddisk and trying to open/play it.

Does the downloaded file (downloaded to your harddisk) play with VLC?
When you right click on that file in your filebrowser what does the right click menu show?
It should list you some possible apps to open the file with.

Hi Thom,

I missed: cd $HOME/Downloads

Following thru the rest of your post brings up both music and video; HURRAH!!!

One final possibility: can I set VLC as automatic w/o having to choose it as an extra, right-click step in opening the file?

With or without this last question I really appreciate your time, knowledge and effort.

Thanks again,
jeb

Hi Bob,

Just clicking on the file to start it would be really nice; how would I go about setting a default app?

BTW, thanks for updating the Set-up Guides. --

Re: Fedsetupguides, Fedy

What I was mentioning is that you should find a drop-box there for "videos" and you should be able to click "vlc media player" to be the default application to open them. If it's not listed, try rebooting and see if it appears as an option.

Re: Fedsetupguides, Fedy

For KDE Desktop.

way 1:
right click on the file to play
--> properties --> Filetype options --> Application preference order
move VLC on the first line.

way 2:
(as Bob wrote)

If KDE desktop is installed.
https://userbase.kde.org/Categoryonfiguration
https://userbase.kde.org/System_Sett...e_Associations
https://userbase.kde.org/System_Sett...ssociations/en
https://userbase.kde.org/File:Settin...sociations.png

System settings --> Application --> File associations --> Known Types --> ">video"
click on the ">" ahead of "video"
A list of different video types pops up.
fx click on mp4 --> move VLC on the first line.
fx click on x-flv --> move VLC on the first line.
And so on with every video file type you like.
Last but not least "Apply". Close System settings.
Watch your video.

Be aware of what you do - it's at your own risk.
