v37 broke Foscam plugin
Opera v37 automatically upgraded (from v36) and now my Foscam camera plug-in does not work and will not install. The plug-in (.exe file) does install on Windows 10 but had no affect on Opera, does not show up as an Opera plug-in.
How can I either:
Downgrade to Opera v36
Get the Foscam camera plug-in to work with Opera 37
If it's a npapi plugin then it will not work in latest versions of Opera nor on latest Chromium based browsers as support for npapi plugins has been dropped since a while ago.
The vendor will need to release a ppapi version of the plugin or allow to access the camera using html5.
Yeah it broke the NPAPI plugin. I also have an older Foscam that is no longer supported by firmware updates.
Here's what I did: Downloaded a version of 36, unplugged the network cable (so it wouldn't auto-update after installing), installed 36 as a stand-alone/USB on my data drive (as opposed to my OS drive where the updated 37 is installed), closed it and renamed the opera_autoupdate.exe to opera_autoupdate.lexe.
I now use that install just for the camera.
