Subject: [gentoo-user] LuaKit Browser and HTML5 video playback
Date: Wed, 21 Mar 2018 11:56:52
1 Hello all,
2 Does anyone here know how luakit (webkit browser) accesses video codecs?
3 I'm just trying it out and I've been really enjoying it but anything
4 HTML5 (mp4, ogg, webm) in video form does not load.
5 luakit uses gstreamer as a backend and I've used the gstreamer flag
6 during compilation. I installed media-libs/gst-plugins-meta after
7 installation. I'm out of ideas at this point aside from recompiling
8 luakit which would take a couple of hours.
