Can not play mp4 Video in oC


#1

Hi,
I have uploaded several videos to owncloud. But it is not possible to play them in ownCloud. I always have to download them first.
I created the videos with OpenShot Video Editor and exported to mp4 [HD 1080p 25fps].
Would be great if someone could fix it.

Hello,

what version of ownCloud are you on?

Have you enabled the gallery app?

From where are you accessing ownCloud?


#3

do you have the videoplayer app installed/enabled?
Which browser do you use?


#4

I just use Firefox via Ubuntu. I didn't install anything extra.


#5

Well, try installing / enabling and see if the problem solves it self :slight_smile:


#6

And where do I get the plugin/extension. There is no notification or link.


#7

in the upper left corner you get the "apps" or "market".

There you find all you need


#8

Okay - the owncloud video player is installed - but as you can see from the message your browser cannot deal with this video format. You might want to try a different browser?


#9

Chromium plays the video but no sound.


#10

There is really not much we can do. Browsers support different audio/video codecs.


#11

Are you running ownCloud on a raspberry pi?


#12

Ubuntu 16 is on my laptop

Alright, thought the videoplayer is an implementation of oC and uses somehow it's own codecs. Well I will just continue to download the videos an use VLC.
