Surround Sound Problem Opera Linux Mint

  • Hey
    I'm using Opera on the latest Linux Mint. I have a 5.1 Surround System, which is working fine system wide (even with Opera) with one exception. I cannot get Surround Sound on YouTube. YouTube is outputting 5.1 fine using Firefox. I am using HTML5 on YouTube. Is anybody aware of this and has a fix? I've tried adding --disable-audio-output-resampler and --force-wave-audio to /usr/share/applications/opera.desktop without success.


    Opera Specs:
    Opera is up to date
    Update stream:Stable
    System:Linux Mint 19 (x86_64; X-Cinnamon)

  • I do not know if it is related, but firefox, having better html5 support than opera, plays the youtube videos in h264 while opera in webm.
    If this support regards audio files as well, the problem becomes aac (which is supported by firefox and not by opera) vs ogg.

    As for what you can do about it, read the post on my signature.
