Upgrading Opera 12 to Opera 32 - Transitioning Smoothly (Windows 8)

  • Ok, that wil explain alot. Still, i want to have a full control of my browser. I like to customize it. Now i cant even move stuff in toolbar.

    What about HTML5 support? If i have a flash enabled, i cant watch HTML5 videos in Youtube. I tried to find opera://flags/#proprietary-media-types-playback but even that wont work.
    Opera was most advanced and fasted browser, but now it seems to be so left behind.
    Vivaldi is still alpha. Maybe im forced to use Chrome, i just dont like Google that much.

  • If i have a flash enabled, i cant watch HTML5 videos in Youtube.

    That is not a settings Opera, or any web browser really, has control over. That is a setting you change on YouTube. YouTube picks which video it serves you and Opera simply plays it. Just change your setting on YouTube.

    https://www.youtube.com/html5

    Note that Opera is currently listed as a supported web browser. Make sure all the boxes are checked (if they aren't then your OS, not Opera, is missing a codec) and that should do it. Since Opera doesn't not have built in codecs your OS has to have them installed.

  • What about HTML5 support?

    Which OS? Opera supports html5 (check https://html5test.com/) but relies on the OS for media playing, so you need at least Windows 7 to play html5 videos and it can't be a N version.

  • I have a Opera 32.0 on Windows 7 64bit. And im using Youtube Center extension and it is set to HTML5. Still, if Flash in enabled in Plugins (have to use it because of Twitch), i get this error message in Youtube 'You browser does not currently recognize any of the video formats available' and then it reload it as Flash.
    If Flash is disabled, i can see HTML5 video in Youtube.

  • So, any info about Twitch? And then those favorites (bookmarks)? I dont see any developer messages in this forum, is this even official forum?

  • s this even official forum?

    This is an users' forum. Developers may read it and answer sometimes but you should not expect them to answer every topic.

    Oh, then how i can contact them? I cant find any contact information from here 😕

  • Oh, then how i can contact them?

    You can't, Opera doesn't offer individual support.

    So, any info about Twitch?

    Last time i've checked the site it was working fine.

    What is the ussue with the page?

    And im using Youtube Center extension and it is set to HTML5. Still, if Flash in enabled in Plugins (have to use it because of Twitch), i get this error message in Youtube

    Does it happens with extensions turned off?

  • You can't, Opera doesn't offer individual support.

    atleas i get some support from here^^

    Last time i've checked the site it was working fine.

    I really meant Youtube, i was too tired, because just watcher 50 hour Halo run for Quinness World Record from Twitch^^

    What is the ussue with the page?
    Does it happens with extensions turned off?

    Yes, just tested. If Flash Player Plugin is enabled, ill get that error message 'You browser does not currently recognize any of the video formats available' and HTML5 dont work. And that happend only in Youtube.

  • It seems that all what i asked in here, works in Vivaldi, so i start to use that or Maxthon.
    Even 'double click to close tab' work. Ill wait 3-5 years and then try Opera again. Maybe it will work better then.
    Maxthon has most features integrated to it and it has multi columns bookmarks what i coudnt enable in Vivaldi.

  • Also it seems that Maxthon really have a good tab history. If you close tab and then undo it, you still have a full history.

  • I really meant Youtube

    If you go to https://www.youtube.com/html5 it shows any unsupported element?

  • https://www.youtube.com/html5 all are supported. With C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash\pepflashplayer32_19_0_0_228.dll enabled H.264
    and WebM VP8 are unsupported.

  • https://www.youtube.com/html5 all are supported. With C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash\pepflashplayer321900228.dll enabled H.264
    and WebM VP8 are unsupported.

    HTML5 is not related to flash so enabling or disabling the flash plugin shouldn't change wich codecs/elements are supported.

    Try with a new clean Opera profile and check if the issue is resolved.
