I have a brand new Ubuntu 20.04 running on my new computer. YouTube videos play without a glitch, but no other audio/video can play. H/W accelerator is off. When I try to install ffmpeg, I end up with a terminal that shows the following. One cannot access the OK to get past this point. Terminal


Apparently you tried to install ffmpeg via command-line, in this case you'd have to use Tabulator-Key (the one two below Esc) to highlight the "OK"-Button and press Enter.

Besides ffmpeg I usally also install ubuntu-restricted-extras.


MY BAD! What a dummy. I forgot you can get to the OK by hitting TAB. I'm sooo sorry. Insufficient morning caffeine.
