Opera 34 : Flash Videos not playing on certain sites.

  • Hi, I am unable to view flash videos at a couple of my regular sites... Here is a site with a video on it that will not play for me. Interesting enough, the video player is provided by a company called Anvato. I see this when I right click on the video box.

    The other site with issues contains more flash videos that will not even try to load for me...

    And here is an example from that site...

    Thanks in advance for any help or ideas as to what may be causing this. Flash works on other sites and the plug in is not disabled.

  • Both played fine here (second one show a error message at first but played in a second try) on Windows 10.

    Which OS are you using? Do you have latest version of ppapi flash?

  • I am running Windows 10 Pro here. Not sure if I have the latest edition of ppapi Flash,but I assume that I do.

  • I do have Flash 20.0.0.267 and in my plug ins it says this....

    PPAPI (out-of-process)

    I also disabled ad blocking on those two domains thinking that it might help. So neither video plays here. The first one tries to play. The second one does nothing. When I right click in that video window, no information is displayed.

  • I have grown tired of trying to get certain things to work in this browser. I shall keep it on my system and use it occasionally, but for now it is back to Slimjet. The videos play fine there with the very same Flash plug in.

  • Maybe you have some additional non-typical configurations in your etc/hosts file or proxies/extensions altering your location/UA? I must say that everything works here (to be sure, I checked both Stable and developer versions), but I'm using Win7, so I'm at a loss.

  • Same thing happening on my laptop with Opera also. So this is not something unique to my desktop. I even uninstalled ad blocking extensions after trying to view videos on them with the ad blocking disabled on those sites.
