Twitter videos

  • Playing videos on Twitter does not work again in the Opera browser for Linux; update needed.

  • Same sh*t every update again. I guess they don't want anybody to use their browser... guys! I copied libffmpeg.so from
    /usr/lib/chromium-browser/
    to
    /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera
    but it didn't help. Those who make this software probably never use it?

    Please fix this simple issue once and for all. Can't be so hard, can it?

  • You indicate you copied a 32-bit library for a 64-bit version of Opera - of course it doesn't work. Make sure you have a 64-bit version of Chromium to copy the library from.

  • Thank you for the hint. It works now if you copy

    libffmpeg.so

    from

    /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/oxide-qt/

    to

    /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera

    with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

    Sorry for being so upset. But if you want regular people to use this software then this "workaround" is already too much. Cause Opera is a excellent piece of software and if many people use it, it will be maintained in the future.

    Cool! I have no idea why overwriting the newer version of libffmpeg.so with the old one works, but it solves the problem.

  • Why don't you just install chromium-codecs-ffmpeg and chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra since you are on ubuntu? And please remove the oxideqt-codecs and oxideqt-codecs-extra you seem to have installed...

    You cannot install both "chromium-codecs-ffmpeg" and "chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra" at the same time. The latter includes everything from the former and some additional codecs. However, as I pointed out in another thread, everyone had already had "chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra" installed when Twitter videos stopped playing, so it wasn't their lack that caused the problem.

    Right now, christophffm's is the only solution that works.
