How to fix Yandex browser YouTube playing error

Fixing Yandex browser YouTube playing error in Linux

Updated: 09/09/2020.

I’ve been using Yandex browser mostly for some time now. For those not familiar with it, I’d describe it as a “Russian Chrome”, made by the Russian Google (Yandex). It is the least slow on old computers, compared to Firefox and Chrome.

I installed it on Linux computers as well, there is only beta version, but it is stable and good. However, I had some problems when trying to play YouTube videos from Yandex on Linux.

The solution for that is installing additional codecs, using the following command from the command prompt:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra

That’s all. It works. 🙂
