Where do I find the PGS subtitles decoder?

When opening an .mts file from a Sony camcorder, the app Videos gives the error message: "Unable to play the file: PGS subtitles decoder, PGS subtitles decoder are required to play the file, but are not installed." Although Video plays the content without the decoder, the recurring error message is annoying.

I could not find this decoder anywhere (tried RPM Fusion non-free, Google, ...). I am now using VLC instead.

Can anyone help me find the PGS subtitles decoder? Thanks!

Install "libmatroska"


dnf -y install libmatroska

Thank you very much David for your efforts to help me. To my regrets, the result is: Package libmatroska-1.4.4-1.fc23.x86_64 is already installed, skipping. Dependencies resolved. Nothing to do. And as expected, the error message is still there.

I had the same problem when running MTS videos. Installed iibmatroska. Nothing changed. Instead I might try converting the MTS to mp4. Thanks.

I first tried dnf install gstreamer-plugins-bad only, but indeed I needed dnf install gstreamer1-plugins-bad-freeworld to get rid of the error message. Thanks a lot, tcomida!
