Vivaldi HTML5 Proprietary Media

I have been playing with Vivaldi browser recently. It is available from SBo, where the recommended dependencies are pepperflash-plugin, ffmpeg and vivaldi-codecs-ffmpeg-extra. However, I still seemed to experience problems with some websites content. Maybe I did something wrong…

So, what to do?

Recently, there was this discussion at LQ, with this particularly useful post by Ruarí Ødegaard, a Vivaldi developer. His link points to HTML5 Proprietary Media on Linux from Vivaldi’s web page.

Apparently, all I had to do for Slackware64 was paste this in a terminal :

curl -L|tail -c+1075|tar CxJ ~ --wildcards \*libffmpeg\.so --xform 's,.*/,.local/lib/vivaldi/,'

That’s it!
