I am new to Blender and I intend to use it for video editing mainly. I keep on getting "could nto load video" on any video type I'm trying to load to the VSE. Ffmpeg + Gstreamer are up to date. (Openshot and other video editors I run work fine so I don't think it is a codec issue)

Also when I go to properties and select from the preset HDTV 720 or any other setting, I dont see my codecs under "output" (I only see AVI RAW and AVI JPEG and frame server)

Any advice on how to solve this ?

Seems like the version of Blender which in Fedora repo was not compiled with FFMPEG support, which will not allow you to work with many video codecs. You can download the static version from Blender site or compile it from source
