One thing I do notice, however, even with the update, is that some tabs that are streaming content stop streaming the content once I leave the tab for another tab. That wasn't the case before. For example, in the past I could listen to what was happening in a streaming forum tab while I looked at other tabs. Now, the second I leave the streaming forum tab, the forum stops streaming. I really need the tabs to keep streaming. (It does keep streaming Youtube tabs, even when I leave them, so I don't know what the difference is between the streaming forum tab and a streaming Youtube tab.) It does let me go to another application, however, and it will keep streaming, so it is just the tab switch that causes the issue.
@xZero Sorry, I did, but still no go.
I can find the original ffmpeg.so in the opera directory.
I also have your ffmpeg.so . Even when I login as admin, or sudo in terminal, the directory is "read only" and I cannot move the file.
I tried to use opera every few years, but always the same. Nice layout, clean but not suitable for drm broadcast.

Re: Vpn slows down internet speed too much
VPN speed has dramatically dropped recently. My connection allows 500Mbps and getting more than 5Mbps has been a challenge ans this change is recent. No more than 4 or 5 days. I understand that using a VPN affects my connection speed but this drop is recent and 5Mbps is nowhere acceptable. Surely this must be a problem. Before this change I don´nt recall what speed provided the VPN but It was much faster because I've noticed that browsing became a lot (a lot!) slower.
Did anyone experienced the same change?
It helps if you have a way to monitor scrolling events and a way to disable the problematic pointer device temporarily. I do not know how you do it in Windows and macOS. Even in Wayland it seems to be impossible to disable only a pointer device, if the device is pointer & keyboard combo. But in X11 it can be handled well.
Easy Files is the latest innovation from Opera that for me is another winner!
I can now more easily and quickly than ever attach files to my emails or Twitter and Facebook posts.
One can attach files to virtually anything so elegantly now!
Thank you, Opera!
