Fixing Yandex browser YouTube playing error in Linux

Fixing Yandex browser YouTube playing error in Linux

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. 🙂
