Indeed this finally works after having installed every other package out there and spent several hours. Other machines worked fine however without this package.

I doubt this is the problem, because I had this problem a few days ago... indeed compat-ffmpeg28 was installed May 11 for updating dnf... but I just removed compat-ffmpeg28, rebooted, and still list all the codecs being supported.

Maybe installing this package run a command that fix the problem without the package needed.
