Thanks, @fehlix with this command if it works perfect in Opera x64:

Code: Select all

sudo -v; curl -L vvld.in/lm64 |tail -c+1079 | sudo tar xJ -C / --wildcards \*libffmpeg\.so --xform  's,.*/,usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera/lib_extra/,'
No todos ignoramos las mismas cosas. :confused:

I just upgraded Vivaldi & during the process I watched it replace the /opt/vivaldi/lib/libffmpeg.so file that was 3,214,888 bytes in size with its default file that is ~50% of the size.

So I copied back in the large file from my ~/.local/lib/vivaldi directory & then ran the following command on it (which should make the file unchangeable):

Code: Select all

 [handy@madmx ~]$ sudo chattr +i /opt/vivaldi/lib/libffmpeg.so
I'm a patient man. I'll wait for the next Vivaldi upgrade & see if it proceeds as it should - all the way to completion, without complaining that it can't replace the libffmpeg.so file with its inferior default version... :crossfingers:

The command earlier in the thread put libffmpeg.so in ~/.local/vivaldi/ . Should not that override the one in /opt and also not be overwritten by an upgrade?

@handy, the file /opt/vivaldi/lib/libffmpeg.so is part of the package. So apt will try to replace it, during upgrade. If it cannot do so, the installer will fail.
Within last incarnations of the ffmpeg downloader, I have choosen already one of the other system wide locations , which will be searched first by vivaldi, which is /opt/vivaldi/libffmpeg.so and as this is not part of the package and hence will not conflicting with the upgrade.

Vivaldi 64 bit terminal command:

Code: Select all

sudo -v; curl -L vvld.in/lm64 |tail -c+1079 | sudo tar xJ -C / --wildcards \*libffmpeg\.so --xform 's,.*/,opt/vivaldi/,'
Opera 64 bit terminal command:

Code: Select all

sudo -v; curl -L vvld.in/lm64 |tail -c+1079 | sudo tar xJ -C / --wildcards \*libffmpeg\.so --xform  's,.*/,usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera/lib_extra/,'
Slimjet 64 bit terminal command:

Code: Select all

@sunrat, yes, I am aware of the other location. Actually, I copied out the "larger" later version of the libffmpeg.so file from ~/.local/lib/vivaldi/ which is apparently another valid location for the file to be read from. :)

I just wanted to try the chattr +i command on the file living in the default location for the fun of it. :)

Which as @fehlix tells me in the post following yours, won't work. But fehlix says that if I put the file into the /opt/vivaldi directory, that it will, so I'll give that a shot too.

Thanks to you both for your replies. ;)

I created a new Wiki entry for Opera tips and tricks that for the moment has only this single trick:

https://mxlinux.org/wiki/applications/o ... and-tricks

Since I use Opera as default on most of my installs these days, now that they have the bookmark experience vastly improved, I hope to see that Wiki entry expand in the future.

Vivaldi-stable update yesterday. I just checked to see if it upgraded the /opt/vivaldi/lib/libffmpeg.so

It did not. No surprises there.

The later (needed) version of the library that I had sitting in /opt/vivaldi/ survived (as did the same version of the file that I still have sitting in ~/local/lib/ - which was no surprise - just saying).

I know this thread is devoted to problems with the libffmpeg, but I just want to say that I downloaded and tested Vivaldi this past weekend and I am finding it immediately to be my new favorite browser. It is extremely customizable, the sync function works great, it seems extremely fast to me, and it has a great dark theme. I have already deleted Palemoon and my other alternate browsers in favor of Vivaldi.

I encourage everyone looking for an alternate browser to give Vivaldi a try. I didn't do anything to deal with any issue with libffmpeg.so but so far as i can tell all my videos (youtube) are running fine.

At some point I hope someone will start another thread focused on the positives of Vivaldi rather than dwelling on this (hopefully past, or at least fixable) issue.
