@leocg I've tried this and it seems to work for YouTube but none of my other apps (e.g. Twitter). I see a list of sites with permission to always open in external app (with only YouTube urls in it), but I can't see any way to add to it.
How would that work? I mean, blocking ads by yourself... It's a bit useless, isn't it? You'd have to take off ads and pop-ups manually by clicking multiple cross-shaped icons. Maybe, you're refering to decide what kind of ads you would like to see but I think that'd not be possible, since there are all types of ads and they show up randomly. If you want to decide what pages may show ads; there're adsblocks that allow you to whitelist pages. For example, Opera ad blocker or Enhacer for Youtube (as the name says, this works only for youtube; allowing you to decide what channels can show up ads and other features)
Usually "package installer" would be Linux, though it is still rather vague - you mean dpkg, apt, rpm or any of half a dozen others? Which distro, which desktop, etc.?
Most likely it is looking for an appropriate version of the chromium media codecs package (whatever name that has on your system; often something like codecs-chromium-extra). Though with the lack of information, who knows?

LOL! What about if you asked me which was my fastest car and I replied that I don't have a car?
I'm afraid that another reason for giving up on Opera is your patronising posts and your pedantry. What is your motivation for posting here - apart from trying to make yourself look clever at the expense of an ordinary user? I think you are enjoying being a big fish in a small pool - and you have just lost one more potential user.
