Crashes on pages with .webm video

  • Latest Opera Dev and Opera Beta constantly crash on pages where .webm video is embedded (or at least <video> tag with .webm source). Opera Stable does not crash page, but does not play video either. Page crashes as soon as video's download start. OS Xubuntu 14.04.2, version of ffmpeg - 2.6.3. Examples:, Imgur's .gifv format. Usual gifs play OK, Youtube videos play OK; Vimeo's videos crash page after you press [Play].

  • It's known that ffmpeg 2.5 crashes in Opera. Are you really sure you have version 2.6.3, and that it's really that version Opera uses? How have you installed it?

  • How have you installed it?

    Compiled from sources.

    that it's really that version Opera uses?

    Not sure how to check it. I assume that Opera uses the version that is installed, and ffmpeg in console show 2.6.3.

    Anyway, the problem resolved itself after running apt-get autoremove, weirdly enough.
