Opera not playing video on -current.


I know Opera was playing video around a month ago, using S64-current which was relatively up to date at the time.

I noticed the other day that it had stopped working. I had been using 109.0.5097.68 with ffmpeg-codecs 0.87.0, both packages built using the Slackbuilds on SBo. I upgraded to 110.0.5130.66 and 0.88.0, again using the Slackbuilds on SBo.

html5test.opensuse.org shows I don't have support for MPEG-4, H.264, H.265 and Ogg Theora.

I have the Opera libffmpeg.so in /usr/lib64/opera and codec-0.88.0 libffmpeg.so in /usr/lib64/opera/lib_extra.

ldd shows /usr/bin/opera finds all it's .so libraries... except libffmpeg.so... which I found odd, however, running strace shows that opera is loading a libffmpeg.so.

The system is running S64-current from May 29ish with a homemade 6.6.32 kernel built using the kernel Slackbuild... i915.ko for video, and it is multilib.

Thinking this system was the problem, I installed 110.0.5130.66 and 0.88.0 on my other S64-current which uses the 6.9.2 kernel with either nouveau or nvidia drivers, depending on my mood. Video wouldn't play here, either.

Anyone else having this problem with S64-current? Any thoughts on what could be stopping this from working?

I had the same problem, i was tired to upgrade opera versions etc... to fix it.
My solution was removepkg opera and install flatpak opera which works fine

Hmmm... Flatpak wasn't a rabbit hole I wanted to explore right now. I've had a lot of problems trying to get Flatpak installed and running before.
