It all has to do with "libffmpeg.so" included with opera for Linux.
Replace it with this one - > https://github.com/iteufel/nwjs-ffmpeg-prebuilt/releases/
Once replaced you will have h264 and widevine support.
I looked everywhere to fix widevine support, but once I found out how to fix h264 that widevine (AFAIK) requires, everything started working.
It's too bad Opera hasn't fix this or doesn't care...
I hope this helps..
Hi. New user. This worked for me after trying absolutely everything. Realy, thank you. More specified, for not advanced users of linux like me:
- Downloaded, in the download folder, the latest libffmpeg.so from https://github.com/iteufel/nwjs-ffmpeg-prebuilt/releases/
- In the terminal, replaced the original Opera file in the sistem with the newer version I downloaded, did this:
- A) Went to the folder where I downloaded the file with the "cd" command (note that the folder is named Descargas, in spanish): cd Descargas
- Then, moved the file (need the sudo command): sudo cp libffmpeg.so /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera
Now, can use Spotify perfectly, as well as Netflix.
