VLC And Playing .mkv Files With Opus Audio

CentOS No Comments

Hi list, I use VLC from nux-dextop as my default player. Recently began using youtube-dl and it grabs the video and audio just fine and produces .mkv files. I can play the resulting file just fine with Enqueue in SMPlayer, GXine, SMPlayer and Videos –
VLC unfortunately says ‘VLC could not decode the format “Opus”‘
Yet my google search indicates this issue was solved many releases ago –
2.0.4 and CentOS 7 is at version 2.2.2-4.el7

Anyone else have this problem and/or ideas on how to get it going?
