I have recently installed OpenSUSE after the Windows 10 trial ran out, and I am having trouble editing video with Blender. Everything seems to be working correctly until I try to export the video. as seen in the picture, the only viable video export option is "AVI Raw". This is not optimal, as I would normally encode in H.264/AAC and export an MPEG. As you can see, neither of those options are available. In fact, there's not even an Encode tab in the Render menu.
NOTE: I HAVE tried exporting video as AVI Raw, but neither the video or audio will play in VLC. It plays like a silent audio file.
Obviously I've missed something, but finding support for the Linux version of Blender AND the video editing portion is proving difficult. Any idea why these options are unavailable?
Missing Features: H.264 encoding / AAC audio / MPEG container / The Encode tab
