Isisombululo esikhethiwe

The videos may be playing in a HTML5 player.

One type of package Linux users may not install after OS install is FFmpeg which nay vary in package name depending on Linux distro. Firefox has not used Gstreamer for a long time now.

You can test at https://www.youtube.com/html5 where if a couple certain checks are red then you maybe missing the FFmpeg

Hi, I'm using ubuntu 18.04.1 and I have the same problem. I wen to https://www.youtube.com/html5 and found H.264 and MSE & H.264 both with red marks. I tried with 'sudo apt install ffmpeg' but I get the same issue. Any idea how to solve it?

With the flavors of Ubuntu you may find the FFmpeg in Ubuntu Restricted Extras.
