  • Hi, I am unable to play some embedded flash videos on certain sites which use videos hosted elsewhere (I don't know where is exactly ): ).

    I have updated pepperflashplugin, flash itself (I think) and opera to latest versions. I know the *nix site is really struggling at the moment with problems with flash but I've tried searching available discussions and applying them myself before making another discussion to clog up the list. Could anybody help? I will try to provide information where I can to help solve the problem.

    Another problem I am experiencing, which isn't critical but severely annoying, is every time I go to watch a video, view a pdf document, etc... A grey screen pops up in the window asking me to enable the relevant adobe plugin. Is there a way to have this automatically enabled? These two problems started at the same time so they may go hand in hand.

    Many thanks!

  • Regarding the second issue, you might check under Settings/Websites/Plug-ins. "Run all" is the default, but I have "Click to play" checked and it behaves as you describe.

  • Either what @wognath says or Opera Turbo is turned on (which stops plugins from playing by default).
