Are you kidding me now. This is the Chromium update from 8 days ago that you get in now.
Your changelog https://blogs.opera.com/desktop/changelog-for-99/ incorrectly states that you released this on the 11th, you did not as the date on this blog post shows. In addition the link from your changelog to this page is broken.
If that was not enough Chromium issued a new release with 12 sec fixes, one of which is critical and four high since then, where is the update to Chromium 113.0.5672.126 from your side or shall we wait another week?

As antonio1678 says, you are one version behind chrome/chromium, because the 99, which came out now, that is today, is based on 113.0.5672.93 and when you do the html5test.com, you get that the videos or codecs for example, are not enabled, ie you do not see anything except for some of yuoutube, because the 264, are not enabled.
I use windows11, on a laptop, and the truth is what antonio1678 says. But my work pc is ubuntu22.04 lts, and I have opera.deb updated today, but the videos do not work, because it lacks the 264 codecs, you just have to do the html5test.com
But it is even worse, if like me you use the snap package of your browser, if we go to your website, in downloads and we give linux package snap, it sends us here
https://snapcraft.io/opera and if we click on the box next to where it says install, we will see that the stable version 98.0.4759.15, which is the one I'm using, because it is the only one that approves the html5test, for videos, but there is more, if we give in that box we will see another version that says this:
latest/edge 99.0.4788.10 Today that is to say, that in the snap package, canocial considers that this version of today, is an edge version not stable. although the deb point is Version: 99.0.4788.9, a minor number.
So as an ubuntu user and user of your browser in snap format, I would like to know when you will release the stable version in snap version. Because if one goes to the ppa.deb package, the stable version that they consider, is the one you just released today, but for snap it is an edge. How do I understand this.
The snap is not updated, in stable format, since version 98.0.4759.15, any explanation?
Also as I mentioned I use windows11 and it is the same, it is updated to the stable version, that you have released today, but you can not see the videos, because the html5test, gives as a result that the codescs 264 are not in the browser and is more, as antonio1678 says, you go in a version, which is having problems even if it is the 113.

Same as 98, same ui bugs, just with updated chromium (already outdated by one day/release). As always, changelog mentioning a lot of meaningless repeated things.

@albano23 For Windows 11, make sure you're using the latest 22H2 build for good measure. Then, if you have an "N" edition of Windows 11, you need to enable the Windows Media Feature Pack to get h.264 support (this might not help with education and enterprise versions of Windows 11). If you still don't have h.264 support, either your Windows installation is messed up or you're having a GPU/hardware acceleration issue.
As for the non-snap version of Opera on Linux, see https://www.reddit.com/r/operabrowser/wiki/opera/linux_libffmpeg_config/ for how to get h.264 support.

@burnout426: burnout426 , the windows thing, it solved itself. Everything was up to date.
As for linux, that only works if you have it installed, https://snapcraft.io/chromium-ffmpeg and I have it installed since I was using ubuntu 14.04 lts.
If you have this one you can't use the other one. Since all that comes from the installation of the system, when you are doing it, it asks you if you want third party software, and it already includes the videos etc.. Then you add the so called ubuntu restricted extras. I have both in this version of Ubuntu 22.04, which is the one I'm currently using, as I've already mentioned.
The problem of the videos, in the end it doesn't depend on those add-ons, but on chromium/chrome, to be updated. I have Chromium installed for that.
But you haven't really answered the question, which is when the snap opera package will be updated to the stable version, as well as the .deb. And by the way I will comment something funny. When I was on 18.04 Ubuntu Lts, the .deb, in the middle I do not remember the year, I think 2 years ago, about June told me .. no longer update me, and I went then to snap opera, and I had no problems until today, except for an opera 87, which crashes all the time.
The question is when will the current version of snap opera be updated. The videos, if it is a tiresome, because it happens in all versions of opera and that happens, as explained in my first post of response, because the basis of chrome / chromium in which developers are based opera, is never the current, as already mentioned antonio1678 in this thread opera stable 99, and as I already showed in the links.
So, the videos is a matter of polishing again this 99 version just out of the oven, which will take I don't know a week or 14 days. I say 1 week or 14 days, because I don't know how long it takes to release stable opera in days, since the previous stable opera was released.
Without further ado, I hope you can answer me you or anyone else, the following, for when the stable version of opera, in snap package.
I already saw a thread, where it seems that people who have snap opera, had a bad time, because it always has problems of this type, it seems the poor version, and rather it seems that they want in opera that we use the .deb, when in the long run the .deb, in linux (ubuntu etc), always give problems of dependencies, not so snap, that occupy more, but you can revert to a previous version of a package, while you wait to have the current, but of course with snap opera package, you can not be using a version like the one you have, but you can't be using a version like the one you have in your package, because you can't use the .deb. when in the long run the .deb, in linux (ubuntu etc), always give problems of dependencies, not so snap, that occupy more, but you can revert to a previous version of a package, while waiting to have the current, but of course with snap opera package, you can not be using a version like the one I use the 89, which is based on the chromium/chrome 112, as I indicated in my previous post in this thread, because in the long run, brings problems for everything and the browser becomes unusable.
I hope they will give more love to the snap opera package, and update to the current stable at once, because there were also cases, which were not updated for a long time. It's a pity that such a good browser, in something so basic to put the current chrome/chromium version, always put one that is going to give problems.
In the end people for issues like this will go another browser.

https://snapcraft.io/opera shows the latest 99.0.4788.13 now. So does https://deb.opera.com/opera-stable/pool/non-free/o/opera-stable/.
Yeah, with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, you're probably stuck with using the snap version of Opera and the snap version of libffpmeg. For modern Ubuntu, you can use the deb and put the libffmpeg.so for it in the lib_extra folder in its install folder without interfering with any libffmpeg versions already installed on the system. Opera will choose the one in its lib_extra folder instead.

I saw that it was updated and now everything is correct. Just as I did critically I appreciate the update and the work done.
As for the other, I obviously do not use Ubuntu 14.04 lts, but the 22.04 Lts, and in it I have both the .deb, and the snap package of Opera. What I was trying to tell you, is that I use only the ffmpeg, that there is compiled in snap package, that already left link in the previous message, since the one that you comment, cannot be put if this the other installed, by much that one is snapackage, and the other .deb, always end up having problems of dependencies, I do not say it I, say it the ones that have used it.
I hope and it is not critical that for next stable versions in snap package of opera, it does not take so long to have them ready, but sometimes and I recognize that it is better to wait a little, so that the product is optimal and usable.

After the new Opera update, the screenshot tool no longer works, the browser restarts as soon as you create a screenshot. Linux Manjaro 22.1.3 with XFCE!
