PeerTube Cannot Play Video? Install FFmpeg!

Bismillahirrahmanirrahim.

Previously, I don’t know why my Firefox (latest version on latest Fedora Rawhide) cannot play videos on PeerTube. Yes, you’re correct, the video I watch is Introducing GNOME 3.30 “Almeria”. The web says “No compatible source was found for this media” but clearly the commenters seem to be able to play the video so this problem is only for me. Then I installed FFmpeg (from RPMFusion “free” of course) and finally videos playing without error on Firefox. It works! However, it’s Firefox 62 and ffmpeg 4.0.2 on Rawhide I got at 15 September 2018. Thanks Framasoft and PeerTube Project, Mozilla and FFmpeg Project, thanks Fedora community, and thanks GNOME Project for making great video of 3.30 available at PeerTube.

If you want to know more about PeerTube, a federated “YouTube” that is free software, read on official website and FAQ.
