    Default videos are not playing

    I am using KDE
    Some types of videos are not playing
    I followed the guidelines of the forum, but still does not open certain videos
    How do I resolve?

    Helps to know what type of video..

    Essentially most formats will work after a vendor change to packman. It is possible that some form of DRM is in play maybe????

    It also helps to explain what you did and not assume that we all know exactly what "the guidelines of the forums' are.
    In other words, did you switch Vendor to Packman?

    When I surf the internet, some videos don't open and I move on, without knowing what type it is.
    Fortunately I recorded the last one, its extension is ".mp4", and when trying to open with VLC, I have this message below:
    This Codec is not supported:
    Could not decode the "h264" format (H264 - MPEG-4 AVC (part 10))
    This Codec is not supported:
    Could not decode the "mp4a" format (MPEG AAC Audio)

    I think this is an answer to @gogalthorpe's question, not to mine.

    From zypper
    Code:
    zypper dup --from <#, Alias or Name of the Packman repo>
    From YaST > Software > Software Management; from the View button choose Repositories, from the list choose Packman, at right above the list of packages is a line like "Switch packages to this repository", click on the underlines part and Go.

    Isn't that in the guide? Shame!

    The line
    Code:
    zypper dup --from <#, Alias or Name of the Packman repo>
    Don't work.
    Code:
    sergio@positivo:~> sudo zypper dup --from <#, Alias or Name of the Packman repo>
    bash: erro de sintaxe próximo ao token inesperado `newline'
    In YaST > Software > Software Management; from the View button choose Repositories Does not exist
    I'm ashamed

    To begin with <...> is something you have to fill in!
    I can not know what the sequence number of the Packman repository in your repo list is, nor can I know what Alias is used for it, nor what name is used for it. Please post
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    And for YaST: what then do you see when you click the View button?

    ==================

    And when you precede commands with LANG=C people being here on the English language forums can understand it much better

    Like
    Code:
    LANG=C zypper lr -d
    , etc. etc., etc.

    • If I correctly recall, these codecs are also required for the VLC Media Player – not only Firefox …
