[Linux] Instructional videos don't play


#1

Title:
Instructional videos don’t play

Summary:
Hit up the learn section so I could try and learn about the character I want to use and the characters I want to fight against. Picked a video, it just faded out the menu and then back in. Player.log says nothing really useful: VideoPlayer - Error: Can't play movie [/home/tiz/Games/SteamLinux/steamapps/common/Fantasy Strike/FS_Linux_Data/StreamingAssets/Videos/video_valerie.mp4]

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Go to the Learn section.
  2. Try to play a video.
  3. Menu fades out, then back in. No video.

Expected Results:
Video plays, I learn things!

Actual Results:
No video! Didn’t learn anything.

Notes:
The videos do work in VLC. Just not in-game.

Confirmed for me too. I’m using Arch Linux, kernel 4.18, nvidia driver 396.51 and game version 0.15312.

We’re aware that this is happening. We don’t have a fix in the works right now, so it will be a while until it’s resolved. In the meantime on Linux, you can play the video files manually outside the game (using VLC or something), since they are just in a folder on your computer.
