I have just installed Lubuntu 14.04.
I can run .mp4 video files directly with Firefox but if i put them into an HTML5 tag then I get error: 'video format or mime type is not supported'.
I have been searching for a solution to this for hours now, I've tried so much but to no avail.
I am using Firefox version 28.0.
OS: LUbuntu 14.04 and I have:
- Installed flashplugin-installer.
- Set media.gstreamer.enabled to false in about:config.
Changed the .htaccess file to include:
AddType video/mp4 mp4 m4v f4v f4p
AddType video/ogg ogv
AddType video/webm webm
AddType video/x-flv flv
And I have also done:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mc3man/trusty-media sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg
Then I installed Lubuntu extras, as is detailed here, but its all to no avail and the error just persists.
Does anybody know how I can get to view HTML5 embedded .mp4 files in Firefox?
