Opera and Twitch, not the best buddy's.

  • Hello everyone,

    I'm using Opera version 38.0.2220.41 and I have problems with Twitch.

    Every time I open a live stream, content gets blocked. I have to press the yellow box that shows up next to the blue shield to unblock the stream before I am able to watch it.

    Last broadcasts can't be watched either. Even after unblocking the content and even disabling the ad blocker, the video does not play. Screen stays black, nothing shows. Time stays at 00:00:00 as well, completely broken.

    Any tips on how to fix this? Getting tired of it.

  • No fixes for this?

    It was reported?

  • I can't use Opera b/c IT DOESN'T PLAY TWITCH!

  • Same ^^^

    How do you mean?

  • How do you mean?

    I mean in Opera for Desktop's BTS.

  • Yeah, what leocg and blackshadowman said, though it sounds like blackshadowman is having some success watching Twitch, which is totally more than I am.

    I can't live with Opera on a daily basis b/c I watch Twitch a lot. I can only use Opera as a back-up or test browser in case Chrome has problems with a site. I click Opera ad blocker in the top right corner of the URL address box, to the left of the "Add to Bookmarks" heart-shaped image, but to no avail. That's been suggested as a solution, but doesn't work for me. And the only Opera add-on I have is a password manager.

    Do I have to report it there, did you report it there or did someone else report it there? If you could be more clear it would be much appreciated.

    I have the Twitch and AdBlock Plus plugins. But I don't think it has much to do with plugins, there's just something wrong with the browser.

  • Do I have to report it there

    That's what i was asking, if you already reported it there.

  • have the Twitch and AdBlock Plus plugins. But I don't think it has much to do with plugins, there's just something wrong with the browser.

    Anyway, you should always check with extensions disabled.

  • Just a head's up that suddenly, out of the blue, past broadcasts do play. Not sure if they hotfixed that...

  • And it's broken again.
