Details about the initial problem are here.

It involved not being able to play Youtube live streams, Tweeter live streams, Vimeo non-live streams and many other online video in neither Chromium or Opera. (Now I have found a fix for Chromium that I am posting here, while I keep the other question for Opera only.)

After installing chromium-codecs-ffmpeg (as indicated in an answer under the linked question) this was not fixed; but installingchromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra instead (installing one package removes the other) for the purpose of playing Vimeo videos (as indicated here) solved for Chromium all the problems I had with both Opera and Chromium (not playing live streams and a lot of other non-live online video).

(N.B The problems were solved only for Chromium, not for Opera.)
