In Ubuntu 18.04 there is only version 75 for ffmpeg extras while latest stable Opera uses 73. I cannot even downgrade or find version 73 of extras because it is impossible to install Ubuntu 18.04 since it depends higher glibc version.
Also I break my package system while trying to install glibc and cannot even change Opera version
I don't know, this stupid thing always happens and still no solution. If there is no codecs then Opera shouldn't update itself, or at least inform that my Ubuntu doesn't have codecs.
I only use the --disk-cache-dir like so
opera --start-maximized --disk-cache-dir=/tmp/cache
and it does work
$ ls -R /tmp/cache/

So please make sure the directory you use exists and you have writing access to it. I use the one mentioned above because I keep my /tmp in ram.
The parameter --user-data-dir does not work probably due to the lack of profiles on opera.
At home, on the local server, everything works - checked more than once.
the entire Park has deployed a modern OS - it works fine.
but such old systems, even the installation files are not found
Okay, so the topic can just be closed, so as to reinstall OS, no one will.
or maybe someone knows how can I replace this code
@manuel2019 well said, and fully agreed, even I'm tired of the ignorant, social-media addicted society we live in today, even my own brother disappoints me... u.u
And yes while the EU has data regulation laws, it's a double-edged blade unfortunately...
just look at the bias youtube is going through these days.
Why can't we just have a world with sane people without all this corporate greed and corruption.
here's something that might be a bit of a shocker
I'm kept low and poor by the government, I can't get a job due to technicalities with my SSI or I get cut off entirely...
I just hate money and capitalism (good capitalism always turns bad) and can't wait till we have a society that's self-sustaining without money and control.
maybe then we'll start seeing stuff that actually respects people
anyways I think this has gone off topic long enough
all I'm asking for here is for Opera to allow methods for setting custom search engines as default across all platforms.
(malware threat aside, users SHOULD be given the option)
What you read is wrong, and let me explain why.
a) In order to install anything 32bit on a 64bit distro, you first need to enable 32bits in apt, like so
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt-get update
and then install something like so
sudo apt-get install mpv:i386
This will install the 32bit version of mpv from the repo, along with all its dependencies in 32bit. If the howto you read did not have the "--add-architecture" part, you probably did not install anything in 32bit, not only flash.
b) The package adobe-flashplugin is from canonical's partner repo, it contains both the npapi version (= flash for firefox and other browsers with less than 0.01% market share) and the ppapi version (= flash for chromium based browsers, like chromium, opera, vivaldi etc). Imho, this is the only right way to get flash on ubuntu and derivative distros, why? Because...
c) The package pepperflashplugin-nonfree is in fact a script that downloads the ppapi flash from adobe, extracts it and places it in the right place so that browsers can access it. Sounds good as an idea, but it has one major flaw.
The download url changes everytime there is a new version, so the script relies to an online file mentioning the version, and someone has to change that file from time to time. And he simply doesn't, making the script useless, or, as I have said before, poorly maintained rubbish. Remove it.
d) The package flashplugin-installer is script for the the npapi version of the above and it is poorly maintained too, for the same reason. Remove that one too.
@zibi1981 Widevine has worked again for a while on Linux in Opera. Netflix still wasn't working but Netflix fixed the issue themselves on 5/23/2019 and it was confirmed fixed by Opera. Also, this user confirmed it's fixed on Ubuntu for example. Proprietary codecs are still working correctly in Opera too. see <https://www.reddit.com/r/operabrowser/comments/bcjpne/howto_opera_60_h264_in_ubuntu_1404/ for example. Things have been tested on the page you mention too.
On Ubuntu 16/18 LTS, you can bring support for Netflix by copying the libffmpeg file from Google Chrome. You can run the simple command:
sudo cp /usr/lib/chromium-browser/libffmpeg.so /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera/libffmpeg.so
@salehawal said in Opera Version:58.0.3135.117 Opera is up to date but Videos don't play:
sudo ln -sf /usr/lib/chromium-browser/libffmpeg.so /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera/libffmpeg.so
What distro is that from? I guess ubuntu...
