Loaders don't work

I recently installed Fusion 9 on Linux Mint 18.3. I wanted to start as fast as possible, but now I have one problem. I can't use videos. Whenever I import a video into an Loader and try to get it shown on a viewer, I get the message "Loader1 failed at time 0". I just thought it would be a problem with the files and tried others. They didn't work either. Well, the problem is not at the files. Even if I have an "empty" Loader without any file, I get the message! I really don't know what to do and would really appreciate help.

Loader1 failed at time 0 is the error you get when the loader cannot find a file to display (and your on frame 0)
That's the same regardless of a bad clip, no codec, or blank loader path.

I believe you need to install Ffmpeg for Linux

Do image sequences playback?

I have Ffmpeg already installed, and image sequences work, yes.

same here, ffmpeg installed loaders simply not working with any type of video file extension, and yes, image sequence work but are not specially fast and I greatly preffer to work with .mp4.
do you have any solution?
I run in bunsenlabs, I believe that any solution for debian would work with my distro
thanks in advance

have you installed the correct (dev) version of ffmpeg ?

# Install the dev packages
sudo apt-get install libavcodec-dev libavformat-dev libswresample-dev libavresample-dev libswscale-dev
# update the shared library cache
sudo ldconfig
