I tried the link in Chromium and it froze. In Firefox, it also froze but
eventually came up with a message that the Adobe Flash plugin had
crashed. Surprisingly, it worked in Qupzilla.
Since the Adobe Flash plugin has been updated from 11 to 24, it has
failed to work in FB and Twitter on all the browsers above plus Adobe.
Having said that, this failure is a little different. As far as I know,
the only solution to these problems that I’ve seen suggested is to find
a copy of version 11 and install that instead of 24.
But why should I switch my amarok, k3b and all kinds of other packages to packman just because of ffmpeg? So far things have always worked by just installing chromium-ffmpeg from packman. Unfortunately after some version of chromium that package is no longer available and as it was mentioned in the bugzilla thread - only installing ffmpeg is enough. However it seems not enough.
Can you please go a little bit more in depth? I really don’t want to switch all system packages to packman.
opensuse is open and contains no patented code, those packages are on packman you can not switch one by one package there are too many of them, amarok is build from the same source, if you want multimedia to work you need to do a full vendor change to packman
Just remember next time you have a video/audio problem just switch vendors. We see this all the time and the simplest way is to just do the vendor change it almost always fixes non hardware related multimedia problems.
packman provides more then just multimedia packages it provides the mp3 plugin for k3b it provides some propiatory firmware for wifi as welll as apps that are not maintained on oss, if having all of packman bothers you remove your version of the repo
