FS#13167 - Rockbox does not play .webm OPUS files

I have a lot of OPUS files as OGG OPUS and WEBM OPUS. Rockbox plays OPUS files that are in OGG container, but it cannot play OPUS files inside WEBM container.

I get WEBM OPUS files when I steal music from youtube using youtube-dl I can play them on my PC in any player (fb2k, MPC-HC), but cannot play them on ROCKBOX.

There is no support for webm in rockbox.

The files that I have are sound only. But it would be nice if ROCKBOX could play also the ones that have VP7/8/9 video. You can display video on LCD screen or throw it away.

I am attaching example of .WEBM OPUS.

If you want to get more files like this you can use as:
youtube-dl YOUTUBE_URL -f 251
this will steal 160kbps webm opus

youtube-dl YOUTUBE_URL -f 250
this will steal 70kbps webm opus
