Add netflix to the list...
This fixed it for me:
$ sudo apt-get install chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra
Any help for fedora users?
I've got flash installed but everything on Soundcloud fails to play, for instance. Same goes for Netflix/Prime Video, Bandcamp and such...
Installed chromium-libs-media with no results.
Well, on debian I had no video at all in opera47, so downloaded oxideqt-codecs-extra from ubuntu. It contains libffmpeg.so. I extracted that file from the .deb package with xarchiver and dropped the file into the opera directory to replace the existing libfffmpeg.so. This did the trick for opera, and apparently works for vivaldi as well.
I had flash disabled from the start and still do
On this system it is in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera/.
Beyond that, the structure is different on debian, with libavcodec-extra servicing the other apps at the system level.
Netflix is still no go, however - maybe user-agent switcher to chrome would work.
Yeah, netflix works with user-agent switch to "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/51.0.2704.79 Safari/537.36"
Also, had to switch off vpn.

These can get the libs on your system efficiently and unobtrusively, but symlinks to the libs may need to be added depending on the situation.
