Browser not seeing website videos - same old same old as Opera

I see Vivaldi has the same issue with videos on sites that Opera has. It's why I switched to Vivaldi, but to no avail. Details:
Vivaldi 2.2.1388.37 (Stable channel) (64-bit)
Flash 18.104.22.168 /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/libpepflashplayer.so
User Agent Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/71.0.3578.98 Safari/537.36 Vivaldi/2.2.1388.37
Can some one tell me why this happens and what can be done?

Please tell us what fails.
Do all videos play at https://www.quirksmode.org/html5/tests/video.html?
If not, a codec is missing on your Linux.
vivaldiin shell and you see the error message?
Which video URL fail?

Yes, I read the sticky, but I don't understand what it means to me: H.264/MP4 is dead, the others work.
I ran the suggested terminal command, got this:
curl https://launchpadlibrarian.net/394835580/chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra_70.0.3538.77-0ubuntu0.16.04.1_amd64.deb |\ > tail -c+1075 | tar xJ -C ~ --wildcards \*libffmpeg.so --xform 's,.*/,.local/lib/vivaldi/,' % Total % Received % Xferd Average Speed Time Time Time Current Dload Upload Total Spent Left Speed 100 1078k 100 1078k 0 0 41380 0 0:00:26 0:00:26 --:--:-- 263k
and I'm still getting this error:
This video is either unavailable or not supported in this browser Error Code: MEDIA_ERR_SRC_NOT_SUPPORTED
So what does that all mean?

@dustpuppy See the three vertical dots icon at bottom right of your posts.
Here are a few links for your bookmarks that you may find useful:
After you installed the
libffmpeg.soby shell, does the first video (H.264/MP4) on https://www.quirksmode.org/html5/tests/video.html show?
This video is either unavailable or not supported in this browser
Error Code: MEDIA_ERR_SRC_NOT_SUPPORTED
Where (URL!!!) does this happen?
To see if your GPU hardware is not active, open vivaldi://gpu , copy the content and post it in codefences here.
Any marked as red or orange?
Do you use the latest chipset/GPU drivers for your hardware?
Is Hardware acceleration in Vivaldi Settings → Webpages activated?
