    Default Chromium - does not play youtube video's and other multimedia

    Short:
    I just installed from scratch openSUSE leap 15 and in this new installation youtube video's are longer played in Chromium.

    Long:
    I just installed from scratch openSUSE leap 15, during/after the installation I mounted my old home.

    In the new version youtube video's are no longer played in Chromium.
    Another one that is not playing is: https://www.skyradio.nl/player/sky-radio

    Both (youtube and skyradio) are both playing without issue in Firefox.

    I moved away the current chromium config:
    # stop chromium
    verify that no chromium process is running, kill any when still running
    # cd ~/.config
    # mv chromium chromium-old
    # start chromium again

    Did not help

    Codecs have been installed from packman:
    # zyp dup --from packman
    ...
    Nothing to do.


    Installed chromium is:
    # rpm -qa "chromium*"
    chromium-67.0.3396.62-lp150.1126.1.x86_64
    chromium-ffmpeg-extra-64.0.3282.134-lp150.7.1.x86_64


    # rpm -qi chromium
    Vendor : obs://build.opensuse.org/network:chromium
    Distribution: network:chromium / openSUSE_Leap_15.0



    I wonder whether the library chromium-ffmpeg-extra is actually loaded (out of the box):
    # rpm -ql chromium-ffmpeg-extra
    /usr/lib64/chromium-ffmpeg-extra
    /usr/lib64/chromium-ffmpeg-extra/libffmpeg.so

    As the directory
    /usr/lib64/chromium-ffmpeg-extra is not configured (by default in /etc/ld.so.conf)
    As such I added:
    /usr/lib64/chromium-ffmpeg-extra

    And ran:
    # ldconfig


    Issue looks similar to:

    From the latter I used:

    Are any of the libs not coming from packman a concern?

    Anybody has a clue, suggestion to get youtube and skyradio working in Chromium again (they work in Firefox).

    This is a known problem. There's an open bug report on the issue. And I think "opera" and "vivaldi" are also affected.

    They should be IMO, both being based on Chromium

    Are you referring to bug report https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1095545?

    Looks like it is not solved easily, as it depends on other openSUSE distribution, such as SLE-15.
    Fortunately there is movement recently.
    Hopefully it is solved soon.
