Opera 33 - Now featuring video optimization and brand new icons

  • So why they released stable version with speed-dial folder's issue?

    Probably because it wasn't considered a showstopper bug? Bugs have different levels of priority.

    Btw i use beta because love new things, love test new things, but that waiting for fix is endless..

    And the ones who love to see new things first are also able to deal with bugs, this is trhe price they pay.

  • Very pleased overall
    with Opera in Linux desktop and Android. But would really like to know why I am prevented from importing my local bookmarks in Android, while it is easy in Opera Mini. Don't want to use sync to do what should be easy without. What is the story? Will this get fixed? (Please!)

  • Any news on password synchronization?

  • Feel like an idiot for asking but can't seem to find the answer anywhere. Does the master 'data savings' option need to be enabled for video compression to work (assuming it is enabled in the data savings dialog)? I'd prefer video streams to be always be compressed but rarely enable the general data saving option as slows page load times and occasionally breaks elements.

  • Hi @davey126,

    To enable compression for videos you need to go to settings -> Data savings -> Enable "Video compression".

  • @kapsi

    Sorry, no news yet! We will let you guys know when we have something 🙂

    @waterop55

    The Bookmarks API was removed in Android M, and since we build Opera for Android with the latest SDK we had to unfortunately stop supporting this feature. Mini still builds with a lower SDK version so there you don't get the problem.

    What you could perhaps do is sync the bookmarks in Mini so you get access to them in OfA.

  • from yesterday i cant watch any video via opera. on chrome it work fine.

  • @samuraj-jones could you give an example on a video that doesn't work? I tried youtube and another site and it worked fine for me.

    Do you have turbo and video compression enabled?

    Do you have turbo and video compression enabled?

    on all sites, yt, sites with news, 4chan, online films etc.
    i dont use turbo mode. i check opera beta and it dont work.
    player start to download video but when i want to play it i cant. it start and stop. do you need install id?

  • @samuraj-jones Ok thats strange.. What device are you using? When you say "start and stop", do you mean that the video actually starts up but immediately stops?

  • thats strange..
    Yes thats is strange and it start yesterday.

    What device are you using?
    Lg gpad 8.0 v490 android 4.4.2

    When you say "start and stop", do you mean that the video actually starts up but immediately stops?
    Yes. on 00:00 the icon is changing (pause) on a second, and back to play icon again.

    I check latest beta after update from gp and it is the same error.

  • Playing videos on youtube.com doesnt work for me too. It shows just loading. On other sites where are youtube videos published playing works fine. But this is long going issue

  • Reinstall help, now it work fine but after login to my opera account and syncing speed dial i see some mess and some of dial are double, i dont chceck links but i think there is mess too. like always after syncing. and what with pass manager?

  • We've just pushed a bug and security update of Opera 33 to GP - please give it a try!

  • Just installed the new update. I can't check if the Video Playback Notification Interruption issue has been solved, but the keyboard issue is NOT solved. It is such a big issue I can't believe it hasn't been a priority. Every few Opera updates you get this keyboard issue, and I don't know why it keeps coming back.

    Using Google Keyboard
    Type in a word. Press space. Press back. Type another letter. The word disappears.

    It's a huge, huge, huge, huge bug. Why does it still exist?

    The keyboard issue that I had before seems to have gone. Everything seems to be working ok here. I have a backup of my old version just in case it suddenly starts again. I'm using SwiftKey as my keyboard although I have had the same keyboard issue before Yesterday's update while using the SwiftKey keyboard. The only issue I get now that I've been having for the last 3 or 4 months is that when I have finished typing a word and I press space sometimes the word gets duplicated but this only happens in Opera so I know it's not a problem with SwiftKey. I thought that bug had been fixed?

  • It seems the keyboard issue is fixed in Opera Beta (34), but not Opera Stable (33).

  • The password bug still exists in the latest build (on all sites) when entering the text using a 'mobile style' keypad (ABC, DEF etc) the only way to enter a password is to turn the phone to landscape and use the QWERTY keyboard, all other types of input work correctly with the mobile keypad.

    1 The browser identifies as norwegian and when I visit webs as banggood.com all the things are in norwergian crowns.
    2. Youtube doesn't functions in desktop mode. Only functions in mobile mode.

    You probably have turbo enabled.
