    Question Codecs for chromium-based browsers

    Hello, I made all steps from here like I did it in my Leap 42 before.
    HTML Code:
    zypper addrepo -f http://packman.inode.at/suse/openSUSE_Leap_15.0/ packmanzypper addrepo -f http://opensuse-guide.org/repo/openSUSE_Leap_15.0/ dvd
    zypper install ffmpeg lame gstreamer-plugins-bad gstreamer-plugins-ugly gstreamer-plugins-ugly-orig-addon gstreamer-plugins-libav libdvdcss2 vlc-codecs
    zypper dup --from http://packman.inode.at/suse/openSUSE_Leap_15.0/
    but it didn't helps my Opera browser to play HTML5 videos except youtube's DASH.
    The Firefox plays HTML5 video ok.

    Opera's console error:
    HTML Code:
    VIDEOJS: ERROR: (CODE:4 MEDIA_ERR_SRC_NOT_SUPPORTED) The media could not be loaded, either because the server or network failed or because the format is not supported.
    Opera version: 53.0.2907.37

    Code:
    zypper addrepo -f http://packman.inode.at/suse/openSUSE_Leap_15.0/ packmanzypper addrepo -f http://opensuse-guide.org/repo/openSUSE_Leap_15.0/ dvd
    
    zypper dup --from http://packman.inode.at/suse/openSUSE_Leap_15.0/
    If you actually typed the above, I believe that that may be your problem.
    You may have wanted to do the following instead:

    Code:
    zypper addrepo -f http://packman.inode.at/suse/openSUSE_Leap_15.0/ packman
    zypper addrepo -f http://opensuse-guide.org/repo/openSUSE_Leap_15.0/ dvd
    And then you could have done the following:

    Code:
    zypper dup --from http://packman.inode.at/suse/openSUSE_Leap_15.0/
    Or even better, the following, because in this case it's shorter to type in
    (as well, because it would have thrown an error because there would not have been a "packman" repo (because you typed in "packmanzypper")):

    Code:
    zypper dup --from packman
    But, if you did, in fact, type it in properly, then I'll have to bow out and let someone else more knowledgeable chime in.

    Opera seems to be doing fine here.

    I have installed:
    • chromium-ffmpeg-extra
    • chromium-plugin-widevinecdm

    in addition to what you mention.

    Yeah, thanks. Works ok now. Is the widevine still actual now? I think it's a kind of rubbish.

    I don't know much about widevine. I suspect that it was the "chromium-ffmpeg-extra" that you really needed.

    it's linked with chromium package, so I uninstall both and all seems ok with only chromium-ffmpeg-extra

    widevinecdm is needed to watch drm encrypted content on sites such as netflix etc . . .

    Hm, there is the trouble again. But now I have all codecs installed,
    chromium-plugin-widevinecdm - Chromium Widevine CDM plugin

    chromium-ffmpeg-extra - Extra ffmpeg codecs for browsers based on Chromium

    chromedriver - WebDriver для Google Chrome/Chromium

    chromium
    And my system packets are on Pacman. Some days before I was able to play videos in Firefox, now no browser can play them.
    VIDEOJS: ERROR: (CODE:4 MEDIA_ERR_SRC_NOT_SUPPORTED) The media could not be loaded, either because the server or network failed or because the format is not supported.
    Desktop video is ok.

    I have "firefox", "chromium" and "vivaldi" all working fine. But "opera" cannot handle some videos. It may require an "opera" update. As far as I know, "opera" is based on the same web engine as "chromium" and "vivaldi".

    Do you switch ffmpeg-4 to Packman?

    Code:
    zypper in -f libavcodec58
