I just checked and it shows MX Linux still at the #4 spot.
I'm looking at the past 7 days.

Distrowatch 7 day page hit ranking

It strikes me something is amiss. Since the page hit ranking disappeared and then returned the numbers have changed drastically for many distros. Manjaro was #1 with well over 3000 hpd, MX was #2 with well over 2000 hpd. Now Manjaro is #2 with 945 hpd, MX is #8 with 555 hpd. It seems the numbers are...

Getting MP4 (H.264/AAC) to work on Opera, Vivaldi and Slimjet browsers

Opera, Vivaldi and Slimjet browsers require a third-party support file to play patented media types such as MP4 (H.264/AAC). This is installed by entering a command into the terminal which downloads and installs libffmpeg.so into the location required by the browser. Vivaldi 64 bit terminal command:...

Re: Vivaldi & H.264/MP4 (MP3 too I think) & libffmpeg.so

I am just wondering if the following info from this thread could be used in a sticky post that resides at the top of the software board. This would allow people to easily find the info when installing / updating browsers. # Vivaldi 64 bit sudo -v; curl -Lr1078- vvld.in/lm64 | sudo tar xJ -C / --wild...

Re: Vivaldi & H.264/MP4 (MP3 too I think) & libffmpeg.so

When I used Windows many years ago the browser I used was Opera. When I moved to Linux I installed Opera and everything worked fine except from videos on certain websites like the BBC. Some YouTube videos were also affected. I simply received the message that Flash was not installed, even though it ...

Re: Vivaldi & H.264/MP4 (MP3 too I think) & libffmpeg.so

Here is the code for installing libffmpeg.so onto Slimjet based on Fehlix's code tweak. sudo -v; curl -Lr1078- vvld.in/lm64 | sudo tar xJ -C / --wildcards \*libffmpeg\.so --xform 's,.*/,opt/slimjet/,' Tested and works. As a suggestion, would it be possible for these codes to be utilised by the codec...
