After a recent auto software update, this issue reared it's ugly head again with a pretty nasty plot.
My last post on the matter mentioning to copy libffmpeg.so from
/usr/lib/chromium-browserhas been invalidated and no longer works, but I can't edit the post here to state that:
(sorry to the unlucky people who google that thread just to potentially give me a dislike)
I'd done some research to see what wasn't supported, and found that 2 of the most popular codecs were missing in action:
like who TF doesn't use H.264 ಠ_ಠ
so after running my patch mentioned above, all seems well and good:
but unfortunately it turned out to be far worse:
I'd double checked to make sure I was using the latest libffmpeg.so from chromium, and even reinstalled the thing entirely just to make sure...
but despite my efforts, nothing worked... -.-*
This is a good joke Opera devs, please get serious soon.
This should've been strenuously tested before the update release was even made.

Hi @tcll5850, try to add this repo, and install/update the "chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra" package, or download it from here, and install it using dpkg -i *deb. If it still not working, try additional steps: navigate to the Opera's installation root, add a new subfolder "lib_extra", and make there a symbolic link to the lib as follows:
ln -s /usr/lib/chromium-browser/libffmpeg.so.
