Couldn't play some videos from YouTube.

  • I just installed Vivaldi and i loved it so much. But I couldn't play some videos from YouTube. I have read posts dating back to 2016 here. Is this issue fixed yet? Or is there any workaround? I don't want to leave Vivaldi 😞

  • Just found out that running vivaldi from terminal prints guide.

    @DaveElec You fixed it yourself?
    After reading you answer I guess it is Linux.

    FYI: You forgot to tell which operating system you use. Easier for us to help.
