  • As it is discussed every second day, opera's built in libffmpeg does not work with h264 (and other) codecs. This is what mediainfo says about a random video I downloaded from bitchute a few minutes ago

    ID : 1
    Format : AVC
    Format/Info : Advanced Video Codec

    ID : 2
    Format : AAC
    Format/Info : Advanced Audio Codec

    Avc = h264 and aac is also not supported.

    Since you are on an arch based distro, I suggest installing herecura's repo and installing opera ffmpeg codecs from there.
