Why do pack opensuse 64 bit with old browsers?

Why do pack 42.3 Leap 64 bit with old browsers?


Dosent fully support youtube html5, i was told over at the google youtube forums thats the reasons my browsers has problems with playing youtube and other sites.

I do not know what you mean with “old”. You do not mention any version names.

Also, as you can see, there are not very much (almost none) complaints here that people can not run Youtube on e.g. Firefox or Chrome. Thus you conclusion might be that you are having/trying some combination that deviates from what most people do. Thus my advice would be to describe your problem here (with all details like versions numbers, URLs you can not play, etc.) so people can start trying to help you with that problem.

That is better then jump to conclusions and present them here as facts.

Missing youtube html5 support again?

Firefox continue to failed aqain H.264, WebM VP8 and MSE & H.264.

Opera H.264 and MSE & H.264 failed with these two.

Chrome failed with these two WebM VP8 MSE & WebM VP9.

Chomnium failed with these two WebM VP8 and MSE & WebM VP9.

Answer :that meaens you dont have the latest versions of the browsers

Version numbers mean nothing… only features.

Multimedia support needs to be added for some codecs (H.264) which openSUSE do not include…

Please go to http://html5test.com by default I see WebM VP8 and VP9 support.

Follow the guide here to include patent encumbered packages…

Ahh, not enough posts…

zypper ar -f http://packman.inode.at/suse/openSUSE_Leap_42.3/ packman

zypper ar -f http://opensuse-guide.org/repo/openSUSE_Leap_42.3/ libdvdcss

zypper ref

(select a to always accept)

zypper install libdvdcss2 ffmpeg lame gstreamer-plugins-libav gstreamer-plugins-bad gstreamer-plugins-ugly gstreamer-plugins-ugly-orig-addon vlc vlc-codecs flash-player flash-player-ppapi libxine2 libxine2-codecs

When done. Close the terminal. And open Yast > Software Management and Apply the Package Switcher on Packman Repo

KDE: http://paste.opensuse.org/92222495

Gnome: http://paste.opensuse.org/71856337

If you encounter dependency errors: You need to accept changes that allow vendor switch to Packman If you can’t work it out. Ask in the forum.

Given Malcolm’s example, instead of the YaST package switcher, you could ( when using a terminal anyway ) use

zypper dup --from libdvdcss2 && zypper dup --from packman

It still dosent work i dont know what i did wrong.

Please open a terminal window, invoke the command below, copy and paste the output here, between CODE tags, the # in the layout ribbon of the editor.

zypper lr -d
