No sound at duolingo.com using Vivaldi

OK, I'll preface this by saying I don't think this is Linux Mint's problem, but one Vivaldi moderator thinks it may be a distro issue. Not seeing how, but anyway.
Support post in question --> https://forum.vivaldi.net/topic/23726/n ... olingo-com

Essentially, none of the sound samples (mp3) will play on duolingo.com. They do using Chrome, and they do using Vivaldi on Win 7. I'm using Mint MATE 18.3 64 bit, and sounds works perfectly everywhere else. Youtube and Vimeo etc, work properly under Vivaldi for Linux too. I've installed the widevine plug in at the Vivaldi mod's suggestion - no go, and my ffmpeg codecs are already the latest versions.

Any ideas or is this most likely a bug in their browser?

Have you tried Chrome on your distro? Does this one work?

Yep, sure does. It's just Vivaldi where it doesn't.
