why do I have copy libffmpeg.so?

Chrome (as in google chrome) neither comes with its own libffmpeg, nor depends on ffmpeg's libav* libraries... so I have no idea what it uses for its multimedia needs.
Opera, on the other hand, can only use the libffmpeg in these directories as an alternative to its own
$ cat /usr/lib/x86_64-linux- gnu/opera/resources/ffmpeg_preload_config.json [ "lib_extra/libffmpeg.so", "../../../../chromium-ffmpeg/libffmpeg.so", "/usr/lib/chromium-browser/libffmpeg.so", "/usr/lib/chromium-browser/libs/libffmpeg.so" ]

@s4n-op You don't actually need to copy anything. As long as the installed Opera version is compatible with the installed Chromium codecs,
@denisftw it is true for
aptchromium package (only available on ubuntu based distro). opera knows the installed location. but, in my case, I am on a debian based distro, I can't install that package, instead, I have a
snapchromium codecs. opera does not know the installed location. It would be great if opera add support for
snapchromium codecs, then, playing video issues will be solved for all major distro as
snapis available for multiple distro.
