Trying to watch a live-stream on Twitch, I noticed I must not have the necessary codecs when it wouldnt load, so I tried following this guide by RPM Fusion, but am having some issue with it. I skipped everything for Intel / Nvidia, since I only have AMD hardware.
Below is my attempt at installing the “software codec” from the guide.
$ rpm-ostree install ffmpeg gstreamer1-plugin-libav gstreamer1-plugins-bad-free-extras gstreamer1-plugins-bad-freeworld gstreamer1-plugins-ugly gstreamer1-vaapi
error: "gstreamer1-plugin-libav" is already provided by: gstreamer1-plugin-libav-1.22.8-1.fc39.x86_64. Use --allow-inactive to explicitly require it.
After trying with the guide, Twitch still doesn’t play.
I noticed Flathub has a H.264 Codec packaged that someone maintains, so I have that installed too. However, because I’m only using the pre-packaged Firefox (not the Flathub version), will my browser even recognize it?
Interestingly, some YouTube streams have the same issue, and others work fine.
Lastly, I should add that normal videos like on YouTube are completely fine. It’s only live-streams that are an issue for me.
