I’m having troubles playing video files with webvtt encoded subtitles.
Totem will throw this error message: “application/x-subtitle-unkown decoder is required to play the file, but is not installed”
I can’t figure out what I need to install to get the subtitles working. These are the gstreamer packages I have installed:
gstreamer1.x86_64 1.19.1-220.127.116.11.fc34 @updates gstreamer1-libav.x86_64 1:1.18.4-3.fc34 @rpmfusion-free-updates gstreamer1-plugin-openh264.x86_64 1.18.2-1.fc34 @fedora-cisco-openh264 gstreamer1-plugins-bad-free.x86_64 1.19.1-18.104.22.168.fc34 @updates gstreamer1-plugins-base.x86_64 1.19.1-22.214.171.124.fc34 @updates gstreamer1-plugins-good.x86_64 1.19.1-126.96.36.199.fc34 @updates gstreamer1-plugins-good-gtk.x86_64 1.19.1-188.8.131.52.fc34 @updates gstreamer1-plugins-good-qt.x86_64 1.19.1-184.108.40.206.fc34 @updates gstreamer1-plugins-ugly-free.x86_64 1.19.1-220.127.116.11.fc34 @updates pipewire-gstreamer.x86_64 0.3.25-1.fc34 @fedora
I tried to install gstreamer1-plugins-good-extras but that didn’t help.
Thanks for any advice. :]
EDIT: Ok, so apparently it’s part of gstreamer bad plugins: gstreamer1-plugins-bad-free - Fedora Packages
(if you search for webvttenc on that page, it’s there)
I do have that package installed… also there’s not problem when playing the files with mpv. Maybe there’s a bug in Totem?
