I’m able to watch videos on youtube. But I can’t watch videos on nbcnews.com I tried following a tutorial where it had me add Pacman repositories and install the ffmpeg plugin. Adobe flash tests good. But cannot watch nbcnews.com videos.
Do you get any error messages when attempting to play a video? I note this site is using HTML5 for video, so flash support not needed. I have no problem playing the news videos from that site.
Try the following
zypper install gstreamer-plugins-bad gstreamer-plugins-ugly gstreamer-plugins-ugly-orig-addon gstreamer-plugins-libav
Did you switch all applicable multimedia packages to packman yet? Assuming the you have the repo named as ‘packman’ you can do this with
zypper dup --from packman
Does that help?
Since you’re using Tumbleweed, this thread may also be relevant here…
Useful to see what video codecs are reported as supported by your browser…
That worked, thanks!
Glad to have been of assistance with this.
