Comment 1 Richard Hughes 2015-08-25 10:11:02 EDT
GNOME Software won't just install any random codec-related package if it's been removed, and certainly won't fix up issues caused by using nodeps. We're only going to find the gstreamer codec packs as that's all we've got the metadata for. I'm guessing this actually works if you remove something like gstreamer-plugins-bad and then try to play it.

I removed gstreamer1-plugins-bad and gstreamer-plugins-bad. It had no effect on playing video.
