Youtube video issues

  • Hi, I'm running Opera beta 29.0.

    For 2 weeks or so I've been having these issues with youtube videos:

    • I open Opera, click on my youtube bookmark and I get to my youtube homepage. No problems thus far.
    • I click on a subscription and go to the videos. No problems.
    • After clicking on a video, it often happens that the video doesn't load whereupon I have to reload the page. It usually works after that.
    • It seems the problem appears if I open multiple tabs from youtube.
    • Another issue that seems to be connected is when I try to change the viewing mode from default to theatre, the youtube player forbids me to do so, but I can change to full screen without an issue.
    • Another issue is that I can have multiple tabs open, some youtube, some others, and suddenly in one of the youtube tabs, the audio from a video I'd just played will start in spite of being on a different youtube link.

    Hope that's clear. Thx.

  • Bump. I suppose a reinstall could help but I did one not so long ago. Also, last time I lost all my bookmarks and had to manually cut and paste them all from memory.

  • Bump

    Too early for that.

    Hi, I'm running Opera beta 29.0.

    Do you mean Opera beta 39?

    After clicking on a video, it often happens that the video doesn't load whereupon I have to reload the page. It usually works after that.

    No problems here. What version of Windows?

    It seems the problem appears if I open multiple tabs from youtube.

    What do you mean by 'multiple tabs' ? 3? 4? 10?

  • "What do you mean by 'multiple tabs' ? 3? 4? 10?"

    Well, I suppose multiple would mean more than 2 up to a what would be a reasonable number of tabs without stressing the RAM to the point where the computer freezes, which would be about 10 tabs.

    So, I'd say multiple tabs would be between 3-9.

    Does it matter? The purpose for communicating the number of tabs was to present the potential problem solver with an overview of the problem.

  • I'd update your browser before anything else. 29 is very old. Try sticking to the Stable releases also if you want better reliability.

  • OK, will update. Will let you know how it goes. Thx.
