Opera still does not play Twitter videos

  • Opera still does not play Twitter videos

  • Had the same thing with a Linux live usb, and found a fix -- make sure you have the following installed:

    • gstreamer1.0-plugins-good
    • gstreamer1.0-libav
    • gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad-faad
    • gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad-videoparsers

    (You may need the i386 versions as well.)

    Not sure which of these does the trick, but I too couldn't play any video on Twitter in Opera with a live usb. Then I fired up xplayer, which requested those extra multimedia plugins to be installed. After that, twitter had no trouble with any video.

    Done that a few times now.
