Frustrating that this problem with Opera is still here. I use Opera because in every other sense it's a really good browser but this constantly not being able to play H264 videos is starting to really annoy me. Until this is finally addressed I'm going to stop using Opera...sigh (Linux Mint 18.2)

I too have had this problem several times now and have applied the fix listed in a comment above. I find this extremely annoying to have to do this every time Opera does an upgrade. Surely the Opera folks are aware of this and can patch as they go?I like Opera but not this.
