Vivaldi HTML5 Proprietary MediaPosted: 2018-12-08 Filed under: media, network | Tags: codec, ffmpeg, vivaldi Leave a comment
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 vvld.in/lm64|tail -c+1075|tar CxJ ~ --wildcards \*libffmpeg\.so --xform 's,.*/,.local/lib/vivaldi/,'
