I just have a small question related to video support in LibreOffice. I read in the online documentation that media support is realized from the hosting operating system which means on Windows by DirectShow as well as GStreamer on Linux. Out-of-the-box, GSteamer seems to support MP4 files with H264 video codec / AAC audio codec, which seems to be some kind of standard codec for most videos. Still, on Windows it does not work and this question is not intended to be a “why does LO not support MP4 videos”, even though LO could definitely improve its user experience by native support of default multimedia formats, but that’s a different story.
For the moment, I try to find some video / audio codec combination that works by default on Windows and Linux. I suspect that on Windows, the supported codecs without installing an additional codec pack are pretty much the same while on Linux, there might be a larger variation. Therefore I’m looking for a good codec combination to convert my videos with either FFmpeg or VLC. I found this question, but actually the given solution works well on Linux but on Windows 10, the video cannot be imported. I also tested a bit around, still I found nothing that works out-of-the-box on both plattforms.
So my question only is: Which video/audio encoding is the way to go for best out-of-the-box support on Windows and Linux?
Thanks in advance!
