Hello list, please CC me in your replies as I'm not subscribed.
I'm facing issues with codecs on chromium (Video calls not working on
Microsoft Teams). Packages I have installed:
$ rpm -qa|grep chromium
It seems that chromium-ffmpeg-extra contains only one significant file:
How does the `chromium` binary load this file? AFAICT it never loads it.
Here is what I tried:
+ Run `ldd` for /usr/lib64/chromium/chromium and all the .so libraries it
loads. "libffmpeg.so" is not listed anywhere
+ Run `strings` for all of the above, still not listed.
+ `strace` chromium as such:
strace -ff -s 128 chromium --enable-logging=stderr --v=2 --debug
Still `libffmpeg.so` is not listed anywhere.
+ Up to this point, I'm not so surprised as the shell script
/usr/bin/chromium sets LD_LIBRARY_PATH to /usr/lib64/chromium
which has nothing to do with /usr/lib64/chromium-ffmpeg-extra.
How is chromium supposed to know that path?
+ But even setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH explicitly to
/usr/lib64/chromium-ffmpeg-extra does not help, libffmpeg.so is still
not getting loaded.
Thank you in advance,
