    Using Opera 45.0.2552.881 on MacOs Sierra

    Some youtube videos play without sound such as this one

    ( in fact all the videos I tried by this guy seem to have the same issue but they work on Safari )

    Many youtube videos play just fine but the ones that don't, consistently don't.

    Any ideas anyone?

    Welcome to Opera's forums @Scoobyclub!

    There is no Youtube link, meanwhile try with a private window to see what happens.


    PS:
    If the audio used has royalties sometimes is retired from the video.

      An example link would be useful. It seems you have forgotten it, mate.

        I swear the link was there when I posted.

        In case this link doesn't make it the all the videos by drawmixpaint on you tube seem to not work ( those that i have tried anyway ).

        I have noticed this behaviour on embedded twitter and facebook live videos.

        It may well be a codec issue but the videos work fine on other browsers.

          I was right the link was there but the posting process has removed it. This forums software/browser seems to be removing links when I post.

          I will try quoting it "

                Well this was a waste of time. Comment systems that doesn't paste links properly and comments that only say the link is missing.
