Cant open the .vmw webinar under Ubuntu

  • Hello,
    I want to certify myself and I started by doing the Webinars. After I download the first webinar: "First Touch with Qt | Learn about the leading cross-platform application and UI framework (.wmv, 38MB)", I cant open it with vlc-player or other player, and I receive the following error:
    "No suitable decoder module:
    VLC does not support the audio or video format "G2M4".
    Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this. "

    I google it but no luck on finding a solution.


  • I doubt that there will be any copy in any other format available since the tool used to capture those webinars has produced those files directly.

    The only glimmer of hope is that VLC is apparently looking into that codec: https://forum.videolan.org/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=93910&p=322492

  • I have tried the default ubuntu video player as well but with no luck!
    I have downloaded the video more than once, with GChrome and Firefox, but I receive the same error on playback!
    But I went forward and downloaded the second video from webinars: "Getting Started with Qt/C++ Programming" and It worked very fine with the same VLC player.

    Has anyone tried this on a linux distribution?
