Media Codec for mpeg4

MP4 are not working in clear linux and I found out that the codec isn’t available for Clear Linux, if I am wrong then please include the codec in the VLC bundle

I already made clear linux as my desktop operating system but it lacks some things that are important for developer desktop,

like VS Code, it is available as flatpak but it doesn’t run on the native terminal, so it will be better if vs code is available as a bundle instead of flatpak.

provide Nvidia driver through the swupd bundle and bring bumblebee support.

and pantheon desktop(This is totally my personal preference) but it is an awesome DE, I love the workspace management in it, it feels like it is one of the best DE for developers and also the PIP mode

There are several other threads discussing this topic already, please read those first:

Install Codecs

$ tar jxf ffmpeg-4.2.tar.bz2
$ cd ffmpeg-4.2
$ sudo swupd bundle-add c-basic devpkg-libva devpkg-freetype devpkg-opus devpkg-libtheora devpkg-libvorbis
$ ./configure  --prefix=/usr/local --enable-gpl --enable-nonfree --enable-libfreetype --enable-libopus --enable-libtheora --enable-libvorbis --enable-shared && make && sudo make install

Then install VLC from Software or reinstall Videos Application, now you can play mp4 files.
