mpv
"Fantastic! (for my purposes). It fills the video gap where Opera can't play some videos (LIVE YouTube, News & Media vids etc - don't get me started). I was able to just plunk down a YT link into a CLI and MPV filled my screen with much joy :O) Feels like a very powerful CLI tool for the "interwebs". I'm in love and can't wait for the 3rd date. Highly recommended."

"Shame.. really liked this app (over that cpu-memory sucking Chrome-Chromium). I was living the dream! THEN... I discovered it's dirty little secret. It's unable to play LIVE video (streams) aka YouTube and other video feeds. Think News & Social Media. I understand it's a legal issue. Copyrighted videos formats seems to be the culprits. This is a serious bonor killer. A Opera SNAP install looks to be a workaround. But I'm not snapping that idea up. Old-school baby! Besides, my TinyTop's SDHD is only 32gb. I've got to watch every byte. I've tried endless libffmpeg work-arounds but without luck. Tired of trying, sadly. I may have to "bend to the will of the snap" :O\ No way I'm going back to Chrome. "

"Bad MoJo on a 2.5Ghz, 4GB HP minitop running Mint 5.4.0-88 generic. Slow as a insestual child. Drove me insane. Moved to Opera. Much happier. A up to date "faster" system would surly masked my issue. So speeders may not notice. But for us clock challenged folk - KILL ME NOW. I tried Brave but now believe it's Chrome in sheep's clothing. A hand full of OS installs and waving a dead squirrel over my head 3x did not help. Opera (after some tweaking) is looking good. Getting ready to torch Chrome. None to soon. Wish me luck!"
