Opera 33 - Now featuring video optimization and brand new icons

  • Hi

    Today my Samsung phone was updated with new version of Opera for Android.

    I also got this problem with screen that freezes when scrolling from History to Discovery.

    Then I deleted Opera browser and installed same version again, and everything now works perfect.

    My phone is Samsung S4 mini, with Android 4.4.2

    Regards

  • Hi,
    We have released an update for Opera 33 with the fix for Speed Dial entries not being shown if a folder contained more than 6 items.
    Update is available in Google Play!
    Enjoy!
    Opera for Android team

    And what about opeta beta for those who use it as primary browser @alexandereqa ? Still no fix, it crashes, freezes, and doesnt show folder's content.

  • And what about opeta beta for those who use it as primary browser

    Beta will be updated when a new beta - Opera 35 beta - is released.

    Still no fix, it crashes, freezes, and doesnt show folder's content.

    There is always a price to pay for using betas.

    i think they should stabilize beta first then release it as stable version, not to release stable version with beta bugs and then repair only stable version and beta leave stand alone

  • i think they should stabilize beta first then release it as stable version,

    This is exactly what they do.

    not to release stable version with beta bugs

    There is no such thing in the world of softwares. There will always be bugs otherwise (almost) no software would be released.

    Usually when moiving from beta stage to stable stage, they try to fix the bugs that are top priority, usually the ones that will affect more users and may impact or even prevent the software usage.

    nd then repair only stable version and beta leave stand alone

    If you don't like buhs then you should use only the stable versions.

    So why they released stable version with speed-dial folder's issue? (now fixed) and it has been reported here and via bugs report system too. And what you said they fixed beta first i dont think so, using it roght now and it's nightmare.
    Btw i use beta because love new things, love test new things, but that waiting for fix is endless... Sadly 😞

  • 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?

  • @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?

    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!
