On Ubuntu/ Mint OS it's not possible to use Youtube or other Videosides, because the Message HTML5 missing or error.
This doesn't work
The File libffmpeg.so, is already in the Opera Folder!
Is there a way to use Linux without tinker?

@corado The libffmpeg.so that's in the Opera install folder doesn't support h.264 video. You need to create a folder named "lib_extra" in the install folder and put a libffmpeg.so in it that supports h.264 and that is compatible with the version of Chromium your Opera is using. You leave the libffmpeg.so that comes with Opera alone.
Opera can detect and use the libffmpeg.so that gets installed with:
sudo apt-get install chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra
, but only if it's compatible with the version of Chromium Opera is using.
See https://www.reddit.com/r/operabrowser/wiki/opera/linux_libffmpeg_config/ for more info and where to get a libffmpeg.so that's compatible with your Opera.
If Opera fails to start with a certain libffmpeg.so in the lib_extra folder, try launching Opera in a terminal and it'll tell you why. If Opera or a page with a video crashes with a certain libffmpeg.so in the lib_extra folder, that libfmpeg.so is not compatible with the version of Chromium Opera is using.
Opera looks for libffmpeg.so in the lib_extra folder first before looking for the chromium-codecs one elsewhere.

With Windows I download opera, Install it, use it....
With linux I downlaod it an then the Fun begins, much fun, to tinker
