If you've ever used Opera on Linux, you'll notice that videos on facebook don't play at all. Same goes for playing DRM movies/shows through YouTube movies or Netflix.

The fix is to replace the libffmpeg.so library with one that actually works (supposedly Opera can't distribute it because of licencing or something dumb)

Anyhow, I've attached a proper libffmpeg.so file below (I ripped it from the discord app Discord on the 27/8/2021).
Now you'll need to replace the one in "/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera/"

Easiest way in my opinion is to open the file manager as root and just navigate to that path by hand.
To open the file manager as root on WINEdows and Xubuntu 20.04, you can open a terminal and type "sudo thunar". Then replace the file easily with a copy paste.

If for whatever reason it doesn't work, you can try this command afterwards to change the read/execute permissions:
sudo chmod 755 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera/libffmpeg.so
