  • Hi, my comment in https://blogs.opera.com/desktop/2020/12/opera-73-0-3856-235-beta-update still applies to opera 73.0.3856.329 and opera-beta 74.0.3911.22 (Ubuntu Linux x64 versions)
    I can't play the video e.g. on https://www.facebook.com/extra3/videos/865783870855977
    Solution:

    roland@hp:~$ cd /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera-beta/
    roland@hp:/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera-beta$ sudo mv libffmpeg.so libffmpeg.so_orig 
    roland@hp:/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera-beta$ sudo ln -s /usr/share/code/libffmpeg.so .
    roland@hp:/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera-beta$ cd ../opera
    roland@hp:/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera$ sudo mv libffmpeg.so libffmpeg.so_orig 
    roland@hp:/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera$ sudo ln -s /usr/share/code/libffmpeg.so .
    

    Please provide a recent libffmpeg.so as distributed with MS Visual Studio Code, Chromium snap or skypeforlinux.
    Thank you!
