Ubuntu – GNOME Sushi preview not working for video files

gnomegnome-sushigstreamerpreviews

I have GNOME-sushi installed on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. Initially when I selected a video and pressed spacebar, the following error occurred.

enter image description here

After installing the gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad and gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly packages, only the audio is played but not the video.

The following are already installed (used dpkg -l | grep gstreamer)

How to install the missing plugins?

Best Answer

  • Install 3 packages by the command below:

    apt-get install -y gstreamer1.0-gtk3 gstreamer1.0-pulseaudio gstreamer1.0-libav
    

    It works for me on Ubuntu 20.04.
