Make sure you have the latest FFmpeg and libavcodec packages. see screenshots Do you also have the Packman Repo setup? Looks like most of the packages come from there.

You need FFmpeg as mentioned.
One option is to use the greginator 3rd party repository.
Patent and copyright restrictions are among reasons why many Linux distros do not come with packages such as FFmpeg in a new install as it provides codecs needed to fully support HTML5 players used for video, audio and even games on sites like Youtube and Twitch as Adobe no longer supports their Flash player since end of Dec 2020.
