A Firefox app called "Video DownloadHelpe" is having problems partly due to YouTube changing formats & codecs, leaving many downloaders "high & dry" so can't "float their boats".

Seems that one possible problem may be app-needed version of glibc 2.27 and the OS-supplied version of glibc 2.26.

Best way for me to explain this is to include a link to the discussion:


The following is the error message produced by Video DownloadHelper when it fails:
/usr/local/net.downloadhelper.coapp-1.3.0/converter/build/linux/64/ffmpeg: /lib64/libm.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.27' not found (required by /usr/local/net.downloadhelper.coapp-1.3.0/converter/build/linux/64/libavfilter.so.7)
/usr/local/net.downloadhelper.coapp-1.3.0/converter/build/linux/64/ffmpeg: /lib64/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.27' not found (required by /usr/local/net.downloadhelper.coapp-1.3.0/converter/build/linux/64/libavformat.so.58)
/usr/local/net.downloadhelper.coapp-1.3.0/converter/build/linux/64/ffmpeg: /lib64/libm.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.27' not found (required by /usr/local/net.downloadhelper.coapp-1.3.0/converter/build/linux/64/libavcodec.so.58)
So DLH seems to depend on glibc 2.27 and my OpenSuse Leap 15.0 only supplies glibc 2.26.

Info at https://groups.google.com/forum/#!se...bc%7Csort:date
seems to indicate glibc versions up to 2.28 with many bugs being discussed.

So to the question: What is the possibility of LEAP 15's version of glibc being upgraded to 2.27 soon?
