for example , http://www.bilibili.com/video/av10870998/ , there will be errors:
[MediaError] Exception: Unsupported codecs Please install H.264 codec in your system
Yes. Opera has poor html5 support, it is discussed in many threads at this forum if you check.
If you want to improve it, install the chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-* packages for your distro, provided that they exist.
@jimunderscorep do html5 videos work on your machine?
I installed the chromium-media-libs package on fedora and had to change the path in the ffmpeg_preload_config.json from lib to lib64:
find / -name libffmpeg.so 2> /dev/null
So everything should work, but it still doesn't...
H.264 videos work on my machine now! Found my solution here: https://forums.opera.com/discussion/comment/15265797
No. Unlike the other users here who use ubuntu or fedora or some derivative of them, I use debian which does not package chromium-codec-ffmoeg-*, so I am stuck with opera's built in libffmpeg which has crappy html5 support.
Thus, altering a file will not help me at all.
Would VLC codecs work in Opera?
Changing paths or whatever needed?
Or an extension?
I do not use vlc, so I have no idea if its libffmpeg.so (if it does have one) will work on opera. I really doubt it will, because that lib will be made for use on a player not on a web browser.
As for the extensions, I would only try the first one that says open in vlc. The rest seem iffy to me
Don't know if the could make any difference.
