HTML5 videos on Opera

  • When will opera browser give full support to HTML5 videos like Chrome

  • Opera has full HTML5 video tag support.
    I guess you intended to ask for MP4-support? Opera only supports free codecs. AFAIK Google is also going to drop support soon.
    You can use this 😉

  • One day it will be possible to see HTML5 videos on youtube with webm format?:

    It's already possible afaik.

    Even when I activate HTML5 player on YouTube, all videos I watch is in flash player.

  • Opera better start supporting H264, even Firefox is doing that nowadays. Now only Opera and IE8 can't play that format, and when IE8 finally retires...

    As for Youtube, they were blocking Opera so now Opera forces the Flash player.

  • Why Youtube was blocking Opera?
    That is not cool.

    Because browser.js is forcing it due to issues with html5 videos playback.

    Do you know if that will stop someday?

    The video will play with HTML5 and it is so smooth! I would like to have this on Youtube.

  • It is possible to add H.264 and MP3 support to some versions of Opera/Chromium by adding Chrome ffmpegsumo codecs. But I don't see much use for them in the web browser, because playback isn't smooth unless the system is very fast and otherwise idle. Frankly, I don't get it why the licensing matter has become so hot, because there are plenty working video players, some with streaming support, video/sound in web browser sucks in general.

    When I compare the YouTube flash plugin and the HTML5 player, I would prefer Flash, as it delivers uninterruptible playback. Opera/Chromium might fix playback priority (or has alrady done so in the latest version), and play video directly linked files fine, but the YouTube player will still suck.

    If you want to stream and watch YouTube or directly linked video/sound, use SMPlayer.

    Yeo, when the issue with html5 videos is fixed.

    And the issue is on YouTube's side, don't forget that.

  • Same Prob with 12.16 (since about 3 Months).
    I used to download the flv via flash. There was a .tmp in the cache folder / sesn or any other. That could be played on Mediaplayer.

    Now via Html5 (turning off plugins) i am able to watch Youtube (but not all). But the .tmp file now can NOT be played on MP. What format is a Html5 Video and what Player should I use?

  • HTML5 videos can be in different formats, for example MP4 encoded with H.264 or WebM encoded with VP8 or VP9 + OGG Theora Vorbis audio...

    Windows Media Player and many other players should be able to play both using the DirectShow or Media Foundation component installed in your system (included by default in newest Windows systems). Or you can download a player with built-in codecs like VLC.

    The problem is your issue doesn't seem to be related to that (playback support), rather it's actually YouTube that recently started to split their videos in pieces prior to delivering them via streaming so what you're getting from the cache is one of its pieces (without the other pieces it's broken). You'll have to find another way to download videos from YouTube (using updated software that deal with or circumvent those pieces), you can get the Freemake Video Converter or Downloader (both download from YouTube) or one of the many other options.

  • Thank you. Yes the file header is OCMF, and it contains words like webmB and VORBIS. Anyway when Opera is able to play it, it must be possible to play it offline (?)

  • it must be possible to play it offline (?)

    Yes, only if you manage to download the whole file or merge all the pieces somehow...

  • I found extension in Chrome web store. It slows down a bit YouTube but it is awesome!

    HTML5 on Youtube

  • I use Keepvid.com if I want to download a video from Youtube. Either because my internet is lagging or if I need to take it to another computer. Like voessli, I used to be able to grab the temp file after loading the video, but now that it's broken up for streaming, it's nearly impossible to do that.
