Streaming and gifs not working on Fedora 31

  • Always I try to watch some live video (for exemple, Deutsche Welle Live on youtube), or some gif on reddit or even some video on twitter (not necessarily a live streaming) it does not work on opera.
    I search and tried several codecs, but most of the solution I found was for Ubuntu and Debian family, as I am new on Fedora, some help is needed.
    The Opera version I'm running on my pc is 65.0.3467.69.

  • @procopio Did you already check this?

  • @procopio there once was an easy solution available under Fedora 29.

    By installing the russianfedora-repos:
    dnf install --nogpgcheck http://mirror.yandex.ru/fedora/russianfedora/russianfedora/free/fedora/russianfedora-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm http://mirror.yandex.ru/fedora/russianfedora/russianfedora/nonfree/fedora/russianfedora-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm http://mirror.yandex.ru/fedora/russianfedora/russianfedora/fixes/fedora/russianfedora-fixes-release-stable.noarch.rpm

    The russianfedora-repositories are outdated and shouldnt be used anymore on F31.
    But still, the packages remain available at your disposal.

    Please be aware, that you cannot use your current browser profile with any of the russianfedora opera packages. (It will be resetted after first use). And you have to use --releasever=29

    [root@f31 ~]# dnf list opera* --releasever=29

    Solution #2: Use Firefox or Vivaldi.

    Solution #3: Use youtube-dl to download the Deutsche Welle livestream.

  • @leocg and @burni thanks a lot! I had searched several solutions on my transition from Mint to Fedora, and problaby I will work with Chrome when I had some streaming issues (I watch much more than Deutsche Welle Live, it is actually just a random exemple).
    Maybe I try Vivaldi sometime, or get back to Firefox (I had some issues with this browser too).
    Thanks folks, and I hope Opera team could resolve this problem for the linux users, because I like this browser a lot.
