New OpenSuSE installation – Facebook videos / GIFs don't play

This is just a reminder to myself that when I install fresh OpenSuSE, that when Facebook videos don’t play (but Youtube does), the solution is to go into software management, and to add libxmp4 and MP4Tools. I think that was it. It was important to allow vendor change, and I had to do a lot of acknowledgments for that.

I see that I changed:

  • libxmp4
  • libwx lots of stuff
  • bento4
  • MP4Tools
  • ffmpeg-4

Previously, I had added the Adobe Flash stuff, and that had fixed some of the trouble, but not all of it.
