  • Hi @lu-menard, as you wrote in your another post, you have Linux Mint 19.3, so in that case try to install the chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra package from here, and it should work for you.

  • OK, I am going to try this, thanks

  • @l33t4opera Thanks, your advice fixed this problem that only Opera had on my Linux, concerning video on some websites, but it remains a problem with a website which displays online embedded web camera streams, and with Opera on the grey window for the video appears a dialogue box which ask if we want to allow Flash or not, so ... i don't want Flash, some say to install X264 : ? same problem with Firefox, perhaps this website is not allowing h264 for Linux ? They pretend though to display html5 as much as Flash

  • @lu-menard Not a problem ;-)
    Could you provide the link to this website?

  • @l33t4opera said in Opera stable 72 - news:


    OK, Yes, it is (don't click if you are under 18 )

  • @lu-menard If you enabled any extensions blocking ads (besides Opera's ad blocker) or cookies, try to disable them for the website, or if you're using some popular proxy servers/VPNs, try to use other ones and check if this helps in your case.
    If none of the above helps, you can try to disable opera:flags#enable-accelerated-video-decode, restart the browser and see if this changes anything.

  • @l33t4opera said in Opera stable 72 - news:


    No, I have only the Savefromnet Helper extension and very recently the Session Buddy extension. The hardware acceleration was always disabled, and I disable all VPN for it

    I have not the Mint Codecs installed though and since I installed the chromium FFMpeg it seems it causes VLC to crash the system (not sure)

  • @lu-menard I mean the opera:flags#enable-accelerated-video-decode, not the HW acceleration.

    What if you launch the Opera with the switch `--disable-extensions", does it help? If so, it's an extension which is causing the issue.

    Please don't feel offended in any way, but perhaps you connect to the Internet thru some proxy server in your LAN without being aware of it?
    Can you make sure your current IP address is within the range of your ISP?

    Also, make sure that Opera's VPN service isn't enabled, when you try to watch the video streams on the website.

  • @l33t4opera Yes I am sure of the absence of such issues, yesterday i tried 3 browsers (Chrome, Firefox and Opera) with this website from a Linux Mint 20 installation USB key, so it is a live OS trial, without Flash, and only Opera was unable to display the webcam streams, it displayed a degraded version as some 240p even in full screen and without any video settings menu on the frame ... so we can understand why this website propose Flash instead of this, even Flash is not very good

    At the limite can it be a problem with the settings in my box ? Firewall etc
    For some advices it is a problem with this website which could have forgotten to set Opera or browsers like it, in its rules (?) is this possible ?

  • Hi @lu-menard, does this issue still appear in your case in the latest Stable (73.0.3856.257) ?
    Of course you also have to update the codecs package to appropriate version, before checking it.
