Post#1 by chocoholic » 16 Apr 2015, 09:51

Hi again,

please go to and check which codecs are supported natively. if your videos are encoded with h264 then you have to add gstreamer to the ISO, if something else then only VLC can help.
i would suggest you to re-encode your videos with Webm VP9 and OGG Vorbis/Opus which should work out of the box.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
