Why can't I play video?

Limitation: This FAQ applies to version 3.0 or higher.

Our mission is to have as many people as possible enjoy the benefit of Endless OS, so we have made it available as a free download, and have pre-installed the following free-of-patent video codecs:

  • OGG Vorbis (.ogg)
  • OGG Theora
  • VP8/VP9 (.webm)
  • PCM (.wav)
  • MP3 (.mp3)

Unfortunately, some other video formats have patents and are not free, so we do not pre-install them on the free version of Endless OS.
