fedora problems with vivaldi
I installed fedora lately, I'm happy with it, everything works fine and I got all my stuff works fine.
except my web browser! .. where I spend most of my time!
GIFs, Videos on twitter and some videos on the web aren't working at all!
It's working on Chrome but not on Vivaldi!
I searched a lot trying to fix it, I got flash installed and It's latest version!
yet I can't fix these Issues
You have not the correct video codecs.
Install them please.
Or your hardware cant not display accellerated video decode.
Let us see the first section from output of vivaldi://gpu
Gwen-Dragon's advice worked for me! I went to the first github link (above), copied the
latest-proprietary-media.shscript to a local directory and executed it from my account (not root) with no problems. After re-starting Vivaldi and checking the link where the test videos live (you get a reminder with the link when the script completes) the sites that had not worked for me before do now.
Of course, I still hate auto-start videos...
