Should I do anything, or just wait for it to self-heal ?
I have just installed the latest version of Fedora Gnome on my HP laptop. I
had to import a 50 GB OVA file from my USB HDD to my hard drive via USB 3.0.
When the copying was taking place through VirtualBox, the system hung
almost completely, I was not able to even move my mouse.
Why does this happen ?
It seems to be the case for Debian based OSes, but then why is it happening
in Fedora ?
I just formatted from Windows 10, and while I hate a lot of things about
it, it never made the system unusable during heavy I/O operations. I had
multiple tabs in Chrome open without any lag whatsoever.
I say this, not to criticize Fedora but to point out this should be the
case in modern OSes. So why am I facing this issue?
Let me know what you think and if any further information is needed.
I apologize for this OT question but I have just finished recording an hour-long masterpiece for my class. However, the volume appears to be really low. I don't know why this happened, but long story short, I really do not want to do this again, so I was wondering is there any software on Fedora 31 that will allow me to edit the mp4 to increase the volume. I doubt that this is that easy, but I still thought that I would give it a try.
Many thanks again for your suggestions, and best wishes,

Thanks for your answer George.
Yes I have ffmpeg and No I don't have vlcextras. (I'll install it right away).
Yes I have rpmfusion repos but the driver has been installed from
official NVIDIA site.
The suggested tweaks to reencode every file sounds very annoying.
Coming to the royalties thing, I have to admit I didn't know that.
What is confusing me is:
- with the nouveau drivers the problem did not exist.
- vlc and smplayer are not playing even AVI files.
I'm seriously considering to revert back to nouveau.
Anyway thanks very much again for your help.
When I want to use the built-in microphone of my laptop it is unavailable. I then
manipulate pavucontrol to make it available which is OK but when I reboot it becomes
unavailable again. Is there a way to make the settings I've done permanent?

I've decided to switch from nouveau to Nvidia drivers.
Everythings seems ok but I cannot play anymore h24 videos.
Both VLC & SMPLAYER just play sounds but no video.
this is the error message:
Codec not supported:
VLC could not decode the format "h264" (H264 - MPEG-4 AVC (part 10))
Before the switch everything were OK.
I'm running Fedora 31 on an a laptop HP Pavilion dv5.
Thanks in advance for any suggestion.
