Problem with HTML5 Proprietary Media on Linux [Fedora Silverblue]
Filesystem looks normal.
I'm really bad at debugging SELinux issues... have you tried anything in that realm? Maybe just temporarily disable it for this script or set the context for this folder to be more permissive?
The user reported the bug (VB-62198), I commented it, btw. It's clearly the OS where the issue lies. @Nlope was suggested to post on Fedora forum.
this actually seems to be hit or miss. by that i mean one time you install vivaldi do as asked and it takes, the next time it does not. i don't think it's vivaldi specific. i do believe it has more to do with the order of installs once on a fresh install of the linux distro. need a specific order to install vivaldi and vivaldi-snapshot.
as for install location mine has always been /home/my username/.config/vivaldi and /home/my username/.config/vivaldi-snapshot
Indeed. At the end of the the install, a wrapper function check the codecs. In case "something" is missing. the user will be warned.
No suitable library for HTML5 proprietary media (MP4[H.264/AAC]) was found,
therefore only open codecs will play.
@garrettroyce I think the very special File System Hierachy and red-only state of some folders of Fedora Silverblue is the cause.
Did you have got a answer from a Vivaldi developer?
You may try to install the ffmpeg for each Linux user who needs it.
Do not run next command with sudo or as root! Only as user.
@Gwen-Dragon You're awesome, it worked !!! I love you Gwen, I was already hopeless. lol
I have another question: does the downloadable RPM package update itself without having to download again or will I have to keep downloading whenever a new version is released?
I have another question: does the downloadable RPM package .......
Then you will have to start a new thread as this one is resolved.
