  • I double-checked to ascertain if Click to play will still set in plug-in settlings and it is.

    Change to the recommend one and see if the video plays.

    There must be one other setting or something that's different because when the ESPN video is clicked on that viewing window appears with the > right pointing arrow to play which I click but it never plays, nothing happens

    Can you take a screenshot and post the link to it here? All videos are unavailable to me right now but i remember them playing automatically.

  • I wonder if this doesn't have something to do with Adblock Plus and ESPN?

    I found this Googling ESPN loading problems.

    https://adblockplus.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=24896&start=15

    Is Adblock Plus built into Opera?

    Have you loaded and watched the ESPN videos either with Adblock Plus turned off somehow?

    The posts on that site include changing code and seemed complicated.

    Is there a way to watch those videos without involving that Adblock Plus?

    Thanks so much!

    Nope but Opera has an ad-blocker.

    I don't use that extension.

    If you don't have ABP installed then it's not the cause of your problem. If you have, just disable it or create an exception for that site.

  • Here's a .png of what I see as it won't load.

    Also, once I have all my FF bookmarks copied exactly how do I paste them on to my Opera Toolbar so they look like the yellow folders as seen in here - http://imgur.com/EchSAzf

    Thank you.

    Can you play html5 videos on other sites?

    Hmm, wasn't it explained already? You need to copy them to the 'bookmarks bar' folder in the bookmarks manager.

    If your imported bookmarks aren't inside folders, you can create them.

  • Eager-to-learn, some video hosting/embedding sites cover their pages and/or the player area with sometimes multiple layers of "onclickloads" ad links. So, depending on your ad-blocker presence and functionality, sometimes you have to click on the area like 4 times before you've undug the stream.
    uBlock makes it zero though - I can proceed straightforward in the browser with it installed (not many sites checked though).
    It's just to cover the edges, or in case it is ''the edges''.

  • @leocg - I believe ESPN is a Flash Vidoe site. I don't know of any html5 sites. Can you please sahre any so I cnas see if they load?

    The last step of pasting my FF bookmarks into the browser toolabr has not ben clarofed for me. I can Press Ctrl + Shift + B to open the are where they are located. At that point I see my FF bookmarks listed in a logo-type format not the yellow folders I had in FF (as I sharedin the links twice). I cna then press Ctrl A and it hgihoight them all and theh Ctrl/C to copy them but the next step(s) of how to locate/relocate them up on a tollbar like FF has not been clearly elucidtated. Where excatly woild the I then press Ctrl/V to paste them so they appear across the page with yellow folders ala FF?

    Can you make a screen recordign of the steps and post that on YouTube and share that link so I can watch step-by-step how to proceed?

    Thank you.

    @ joshl - I've pressed the > right pointing arrow (Play) many times (10 x) but the video never plays. I don't have any ad blocker enabled so it's not clear what's preventing the espn video from playing.

  • believe ESPN is a Flash Vidoe

    The screenshot that you shared shows a html5 video.

    I don't know of any html5 sites. Can you please sahre any so I cnas see if they load?

    Disable Flash and try YouTube, Dailymotion, Vimeo, etc.

  • Interesting since practically every time I would visit ESPN I would get a pop-up message instructing me to download the latest Flash Player.

    Thank you for correcting me on that.

    How do I disable flash?

    Thanks so much!

  • How do I disable flash?

    Menu > Developer > plugins. Or just go to opera://plugins.
