i guess this will work.
select update an recovery
recover it, and reset everything
and i guess that will work.
i had many problems with opera and this worked for me.

@operauserx yes, I tried that option
it's not specific to whatsapp web though, it's a general thing that happens on many websites (twitter -sometimes-, whatsapp web, heroku's website -though not in heroku's dashboard-, reddit -sometimes-, my home banking website, I couldn't find a pattern between all those sites, some has videos, some have service workers, some has none, some work for some time and then crash)
just tried clearing cookies or cache for whatsapp and it didn't fix the problem either

I think it's related to the ffmpeg hack to get videos working on linux (linked in the first comment), but the same libffmpe.so file is being used with opera-beta and it doesn't crash, so I imagine it's something with opera that will get fixed by itself eventually?
Opera 81 (Chromium 95) and Opera 82 (Chromium 96) uses different versions of libffmpeg.so
And even if newer versions of libffmpeg.so are usually compatible with older versions of Opera, this time backward compatibility is broken. So Opera 82 doesn't work with libffmeg.so for Opera 81, and Opera 81 doesn't work with libffmpeg.so for Opera 82.
Opera 81 requires version 0.58.0 and Opera 82 requires 0.59.0

@styen thank you! it seems to be working now!
for reference, I was not able to downgrade chromium but following this guide https://gist.github.com/Thomas-Ln/c4ae803e90f9984b6612c8983c8fde1f I got the libffmpeg.so from the .deb package for version 95.0.4638.69 of chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra
