If you are using regular, stock Ubuntu or Debian:
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
If you are using Kubuntu:
sudo apt-get install kubuntu-restricted-extras
If you are using Xubuntu:
sudo apt-get install xubuntu-restricted-extras
If you are using Lubuntu:
sudo apt-get install lubuntu-restricted-extras

@fredyavatar Does the first one work for Ubuntu GNOME 17.04 Zasty Zepus too? As we've all heard the news, Ubuntu will transfer to the GNOME environment as a whole, and Unity desktop won't be developed anymore in the future. Therefore, I've moved to Ubuntu GNOME in advance already

I would like to add that the above do NOT apply to debian. There is no package named ubuntu-restricted-extras
All the *ubuntu-restricted-extras packages install the same stuff and they are not desktop enviroment related, so yes, it will work even if ubuntu switches to gnome.

This discussion has helped me to obtain mp3 support, https://solus-project.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1004 ; post of May 20, 2017 there. I have downloaded an archive with libffmpeg.so file from GitHub (https://github.com/iteufel/nwjs-ffmpeg-prebuilt/releases/tag/0.20.3) and copied the .so-file into /usr/lib64/opera/, previously saving the corresponding old file as libffmpeg.so_orig, restarted Opera and it works.
libffmpeg.so from Chromium didn't help for me. FireFox and Chrome did play content, but Opera didn't.
My OS is openSUSE 42.2, 64-bit.

As stated on that github repo, that libffmpeg is "FFmpeg prebuilt binaries for NW.js" (nw.js = node-webkit or node.js or electron as it is more commonly known). So, this library is intended for node.js apps like skypeforlinux, popcorntime, vivaldi etc.
It just happens to work on opera because both opera and node.js are build on the very same chromium libraries, nothing more, nothing less. It is not the libffmpeg built for chromium or from chromium's source, and that is the reason I will skip that one too
But thanks for the tip

@natasha-from-dnepropetrovsk Thanks for your instructions, and sorry for my stupid question that I will ask now.
I am beginner with Linux. I was trying to find the folder
/usr/lib64/opera/, but I could not find anything that is exactly the same. However, I was able to find the following one:
/usr/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera. Is this the same, maybe?
My second question, do I have to follow all the instructions at https://solus-project.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1004 (post by mk6ve, Thu Jan 14, 2016 11:50 am), or is it enough to that I do what you wrote here?
Thanks a lot!
Cheers, and have I nice weekend!

I recommend you to try it by yourself, Her latest connection was 1 month ago...
Make a back up and if needed create the unexistent folder if you existent one doesn't do the trick.
For Opera back up look at the signature - if need it -.
Windows 10 (x64) | Anniversary Update
Opera Stable · Beta · Developer
