  • Hi there,

    I just installed a new Windows. As I installed Opera too, I got for the first time one of the versions with the Chromium stuff. In this version 20, I have only very limited configuration possibilities.

    In the old version v12, I could set for every MIME-Type what Opera should do with the file. For instance open it with e special plugin or use a program. Is there anything like that in the v20?

    My problem is that I want to use the VLC-Plugin to open video files but I cannot find any settings to activate the plugin if it isn't recognized automatically by Opera.

    Thank you for your replies, I hope my english is somehow understandable.


  • Sorry, there's no such setting (yet).

  • You can activate VLC media player web plugin on the Plugins page, opera://plugins
