How to play vids on Reddit, Facebook, Twitter etc. etc.

Leave a comment

If you can wonder why you can play vids on youtube, but need to  do additional shit to play vids on sites like Reddit, Facebook, Twitter etc. I will basically give you two words HTML5 and h264, don’t bother asking me anything about those subjects  photo talktothehand.gif

I had to Google like crazy to find the solution, hence I am creating a post. Credit goes to gman1  photo worshippy.gif he shared his solution on here. I was drunk (yeah I know  photo talktothehand.gif go fuck yourself now) when I fixed the problem. So the usual screenshots, are missing  photo emo.gif

What you basically have to do is, fire up terminal paste the following code and follow the instructions on your screen.

dnf install https://download1.rpmfusion.org/{free/fedora/rpmfusion-free,nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree}-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm
dnf install ffmpeg-libs compat-ffmpeg28
dnf install gstreamer1-libav gstreamer1-plugins-ugly
