- Close Vivaldi.
- I felt like being bold so I got the the latest* ffmpeg build from here: https://github.com/iteufel/nwjs-ffmpeg- ... t/releases
- Unzipped it so the contained libffmpeg.so file got the complete path ~/Downloads/0.25.2-linux-x64/libffmpeg.so.
- In Terminal:
Code: Select all
cd /usr/share/vivaldi-stable/lib sudo mv libffmpeg.so libffmpeg.so.orig sudo cp ~/Downloads/0.25.2-linux-x64/libffmpeg.so .
Now start Vivaldi again. To verify, try e.g. a "gifv" at imgur that is actually using an underlying mp4 stream like this one: https://i.imgur.com/q5Va5RF.gifv. If everything's OK, you should now see a behind the scenes look of a Game of Thrones swordfight!
