Problems with streaming flash on Opera/Linux/Ubuntu - SOLVED

less than 1 minute read

I tried to stream the excellent Porthcawl RNLI live stream from my ubuntu laptop and encountered the error message:

"your browser does not currently recognize any of the video formats available"

I found the solution here.

This solved it for me (I had to amend the commands slightly to change library locations):

  • wget
  • unzip
  • sudo mv /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera/ /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera/libffmpeg.so_orig
  • sudo cp /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera/

Then restart Opera.
