I have a wish to make - webtorrent support. I miss the torrent downloading as we had in opera 12.x (of course, i do miss another feature - mails. but, this is more important). We can safe skip relying on external clients and tracking by those websites.
Thanks and regards.

ffmpeg-codecs-extras for opera-snapSuggestions and feature requests
I have made similar request/help for opera-deb earlier this month. I love opera-snap better now (than opera-deb). This snap seems more secure (sandboxed) and self-contained (dependencies). However, I miss linking to ffmpeg-codecs-extras for playing netflix/amazon prime. After getting help from this forum, I could play netflix and prime video using opera deb. Opera snap does not allow linking to external libraries. Hence, I think, solution could be providing it as a snap or allowing linking.
I such facility available now? Thanks in advance for the help
RE: Can not play videos on websites by Opera 63.0.3368.88 and .107Opera for Linux
@jimunderscorep I have a different experience.
I prefer opera snap over the deb. Why? It is self contained and sandboxed - No dependency hell or security breach. But, I do have a problem. Even it does not run netflix or amazon prime - same widewinecdm problem. Chromium-ffmpeg-extras is not in snap store nor this opera snap allows us to symlink chromium-ffmpeg-extras deb to symlink.
Otherwise, I started liking snap (it's really cool, buddy - thanks, Canonical), especially for apps that use internet - like, telegram, opera, etc
RE: [Solved]Widevinecdm supportOpera for Linux
Hi @ganesanrajesh, you can check, if the below steps will help in your case:
1. Download the libffmpeg for NW.js, as mentioned here, or version of the lib, that matches (or is closest to) the Chromium version for your Opera, e.g. in the recent stable 76.0.3809.132 try one of 76...100, that matches your Ubuntu/Linux distro from here, and navigate to Opera's installation root (check the path in
opera:about> Paths > Install, add a new "lib-extra" subfolder, and unpack the "libffmpeg.so" file from the archive/package mentioned above into it.
2. If you have Widevine already installed on one of the paths, that Opera can recognize and it still doesn't work, you can try to follow the steps mentioned here.
Yes @l33t4opera It worked ...
[Solved]Widevinecdm supportOpera for Linux
May I request you to consider supporting widewinecdm in opera linux? I have to resort to firefox/chrome to view Amazon prime or Netflix.
I am sure of technical difficulties involved. Since, opera is based upon chrome, I wish I had this support too.
I am using opera for linux using snap in Ubuntu-19.04
Thanks in advance
