fedora problems with vivaldi
intel last edited by Gwen-Dragon
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... ;)
