FFmpeg version

  • What version of FFmpeg does Vivaldi use? For Opera (from stable to developer) at the moment I compile local version of ffmpeg-2.4.x libraries, but they don't work with Vivaldi, and without them there's no support for H.264 and MP3 in HTML5 videos, at least in Linux.

  • I thought here is for Windows. 🙂

    Maybe ffmpeg-2.4.x is too old. Why not use the latest ffmpeg git head

    And does the "don't work" mean build error or something others ?

  • A year ago this subforum wasn't named "Vivaldi for Windows". Or there just wasn't a separate thread for other systems, I don't remember anymore.

    Anyway, this topic is majorly outdated. More than half a year ago Chromium changed the way it worked with ffmpeg, which now must be compiled from the corresponding Chromium version's sources. Proprietary media formats are working now.

    Proprietary media formats are working now.

    Under windows Vivaldi doesn't use ffmpeg at all, at least for proprietary codecs. It use the MS codecs.
