Twitch videos not working without flash

  • Hello,
    Twitch videos dont work with my Opera saying "No supported video backend available; Flash is not installed".
    And its true, I dont have flash installed.
    Twitch should work with html5 though and it does so in Firefox.
    What seems weired is that in Opera I can see the Twitch-Chat (which sould be html5, no?) but not in Firefox.
    Any idea what I could try (except installing Flash)?

    I tried to google a solution but could find anything the worked.
    Youtube for example works fine.

    Im running Manjaro Linux (x86_64; GNOME) and Opera 43.0.2442.1144

  • Just a small correction, Chat works in Firefox after all.

  • Welcome to Opera forums @Lumenie!

    Check if this solution solves your problem, and read the last Hibou57 post in the thread too.

    There are more post about "Flash not working in *nix" if this solution doesn't work for your distro, use the forums search.

  • Thank you for the welcome.
    My post is not about "Flash not working". I dont have Flash installed and I dont want to either,

    Its about videos/streams that work without Flash in other browsers (in my example Firefox) but not in Opera.

    It might be something about h.264 since on the HTML5-Test-Site in Opera that codec is not working but in Firefox it is.
    I do however have "libx264" installed.
    I found one suggestion to install "opera-ffmpeg-codecs".
    Before I do that, is there a way to make Opera use the codec from "libx264"?

  • Oh! :doh:, sorry

    Don't know about your question, but maybe the first thread works, or it's what you've already found.
