When I download youtube videos and create a .mkv file from the mp4/webm files that youtube gives me, the resultant .mkv plays fine with Enqueue in SMPlayer, GXine, SMPlayer and Videos but my VLC does not.
Error is 'VLC could not decode the format "Opus"'
My google searches indicate that VLC should be able to play these since 2.0.4 and I'm running the version 2.2.2-4.el7

Any ideas of what I need to change / do.

Hi,

For some reason VLC did not pick up Opus libs at build time, will need to see why. Thanks for reporting this.

I'm still seeing this on vlc-2.2.2-5.el7.nux.x86_64 so I guess it didn't make it into the last build. The various *mplayer's work fine.

Ah, ok, I added http://li.nux.ro/download/nux/tmp/vlc7/ and ran yum update vlc\* opus\* (pulls in live555-libs) and the issue is solved.

Trevor,

Yeah, unfortunately I have to maintain that separate VLC build, because of too old deps in Base.

It apparently doesn't require anything that overwrites base in el7. I only updated opus, vlc, vlc-core, vlc-extras and live555-libs.

Thanks for that, what I meant is Base AND EPEL ... Opus in EPEL is too old for VLC afaik.
