Video playback

  • This has probably been discussed many times, so my apologies. However I cannot play videos on certain sites, You tube is fine, but Facebook for instance not. Have followed all instructions about flash updates etc, but still no joy. Please please someone advise ?

    Many thanks
    Derek

  • Yes , same problem on this site as well as others. Start my Safari and all is good

  • Hello @littlejonah, which version of OS X are you on and can you give a link to a video that's not working for you?

  • I'm having similar issues with many videos on www.digg.com . Some videos play fine but sometimes i have to go to youtube's site directly to view videos and even then it seems to load the player in flash instead of HTML5.

    I'm using the mac beta version with VPN

  • Same problem. Is anybody going to make any suggestions here?

  • AVL, I just noticed your request above.
    Fox news does not work.
    Here is a link to one:

    Thanks so much for your help
    I want to switch from Safari to Opera but I really need to get this issue solved first.

  • i had issues with my opera browser on my mac. but i just fixed them simply by opening opera://gpu then at the very top "Graphics Feature Status" i used to have "Rasterization" and "Video Decode" in "Software only. Hardware acceleration disabled" mode, which caused many problems with Youtube html5 player as well as several other problems.

    The solution is to go to opera://flags and in search bar type the specific category of "Graphics Feature Status" (in my case "Rasterization" for example). Since this is to do with GPU, i enabled "GPU rasterization" and right away under "Graphics Feature Status" , in opera://gpu, next to "Rasterization" appeared a green "Hardware accelerated" sign.

    I did the same with "Video Encode". Literally the same and now i DON'T have to wait couple of hours to see an uploaded video in Youtube in html5, I can watch Youtube streams (also html5). I am not so much into twitter or vine, but i think this fixed ALL my video playback issues in opera. You are Welcome.
