"Click to Play" not working after latest auto update

  • I love having the setting under plug-ins set to "click to play" so that annoying ads and youtube videos don't play unless I click them. This was working fine until I got the message "Opera has been updated" and now it no longer works on youtube videos. The strange thing is that it still works on some ads.

    Is this a bug in the new version? Flash issue? Thoughts?

  • It looks like this is just a coincidence. YouTube apparently stopped using Flash altogether (they're rolling out a new player, have you noticed it?). The new YouTube player is built in HTML5, the click-to-play setting only affects plug-ins like Flash not HTML5.
