Opera for Amazon Instant Video (Prime)

  • I am using Opera 34.0.2036.25 on my Mac mini running OS X 10.11.2 and cannot watch Amazon. No problem using Firefox or Safari. Does this have something to do with the Silverlight plugin that Amazon requires?

    How can I enable HTML5 for Amazon to use, as it does not seem to be present by default. How can i install Widevine if that is what is reqiured, i cannot find a version for Opera Mac.


  • Hi @rrrgg, Widevine is automatically downloaded by Opera whenever it's needed. According to http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/help/id=201422810 , Amazon will use the HTML5 player for Opera.

    I can't check Amazon myself right now, but can you describe what happens? Do you see an error message, a hint that it's trying to use Silverlight instead of HTML5?
