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

@Gerson, there isn't somewhere else in the system where the libffmpeg.so file can be put that Opera will accept?

Somewhere that won't be overwritten by Opera updates. If no one here knows of a path, perhaps an email, or post in the Opera forum would get an answer from one of the Opera devs.

Re: Could we see the end of Google?

@boombaby, I just used the name of the article that the OP links to. Which was posted as I thought some people may enjoy having the topic bought to their mind.

I should note that I don't think that the linked article itself is anything special though.

Re: Could we see the end of Google?

A little less than 30 years ago I worked for Kodak. At the time they shared 1st place with IBM, as the wealthiest/largest corporation in the world. ~Six years ago, in 2012, Kodak filed for bankruptcy. It emerged from bankruptcy after selling off most of what it once was, & selling patents. It looks ...

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

Just replace "~/.local/lib/vivaldi/" in the command with wherever the browser looks for libffmpeg.so Since I've got Opera installed with non-functioning h.264 I gave it a try. I found a previous post which indicated where to put the file https://forum.mxlinux.or...

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

For what it's worth, going to this Vivaldi help page https://help.vivaldi.com/article/html5-proprietary-media-on-linux/ and copying and running the 64-bit command in the Other Linux section seems to have solved my problem in this area. BBC News and YouTube videos now work for me in Vivaldi. Cool. T...

Re: distrowatch ranking panel is missing

Cool. I went there yesterday to check out the table & had to go to this page:

I thought it was a design change... I'm glad that the table will return to its old position.
