youtube playback

  • for most of the last few versions of opera for Android playback of youtube videos has been terrible.

    in both full screen and normal on page playback the colours in the video are only hues of bright green and pink, and they are not in scale with each other ie images in pink are much larger and therefore don't overlay correctly on the greens.

    what I would prefer is a way to make opera for Android open all youtube links in the official youtube app as it did with opera mobile after flash support was dropped..

    please help !!!!

  • I should add that this problem is restricted only to youtube, everything else works just fine

  • OK so the overwhelming response suggests nobody has a clue what I'm talking about...

    so with a degree of irony allow me to present a youtube video of me trying to view a youtube video via Opera for Android v30

    no idea if bbcode is supported so https://youtu.be/-EUE03fH19A

    and the original video itself just to exclude the notion it's related to that https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l8LdIwpnprI&feature=youtu.be

    again this is what it's like pretty much 90% of the time thru the browser...

  • assuming it's one link per post, here's that second link to the original video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l8LdIwpnprI&feature=youtu.be

  • and hopefully third time lucky https://youtu.be/l8LdIwpnprI

  • works good for me.. but with normal setings opera-mobile site.. no opera turbo and no opera max.. not es good like the application YouTube but thats google/YouTube fault not Opera.. let me test now Opera desktop version of sites..

  • when i change my opera mobile into the desktop version.. and remove m. youtube to www. youtube the video is not working is black screen no video no audio.. no other video vorks on desktop user.. but it shows option for screen quality up to 1080p HD and lower.. nothing works .. only mobile user works fine not great like the YouTube app

  • when i change my opera mobile into the desktop version.. and remove m. youtube to www. youtube the video is not working is black screen no video no audio.. no other video vorks on desktop user.. but it shows option for screen quality up to 1080p HD and lower.. nothing works .. only mobile user works fine not great like the YouTube app

    then why not leave it in mobile view?

  • well most mobile sites are pretty crappy, I don't want to put up with that either or constantly switching user agent just to visit YouTube...
