video playing error "Cannot load M3U8: Crossdomain Access Denied"

  • Hi, I just started using Opera today. I have a problem playing videos. Most sites work fine, but a few sites will not play the video - I get an error message "Cannot load M3U8: Crossdomain Access Denied".

    Can anyone advise how to fix this so I can play videos on all sites?

    I use Windows 7 and the latest Opera 39.0.2256.48


  • If you post a few example links, it would be easier for people to check.

    I'm not sure if Opera supports m3u8.

  • Hi All!

    After about a year using Opera I just started to get this "M3U8" error.
    and after trawling the web for a solution I see that I am far from alone!
    Problem does nor occur in Chrome or Firefox, only in Opera.
    I see that this post is more than 6 months old,and there are other posts
    elsewhere going back to 2012!
    Has anyone discovered a fix for this?


  • With some video players if you change the "m3u8" to "mov" it will play.
