  • Whenever I watch you tube video Opera (Version 38, Version 39, Version 40 and Opera Developer crashes.
    Opera states: one of these whenever it crashes:
    (1).Page crushed: Unfortunately something caused this page to quite.It might have been an extension conflict or other reason.
    Try reloading the page or navigate to another page to continue.
    (2).At least on file with resources (.pak) is corrupted. Please reinstall Opera.
    I have installed latests flash Player. Reinstall the Opera again and again.The problem is still going on every 2 -3 minutes.
    Version: 40.0.2308.62 - Opera is up to date and Opera Developer,Update stream: Stable ,System: Windows 7 64-bit (WoW64)
    Any suggestion?

  • YouTube doesn't use Flash anymore. Have you tried it with hardware acceleration disabled?

  • Hi lando242, I did a hardware acceleration disable. It keep crushing only on youtube videos/page.

    If you tube does not use Flash any more, then which one is?

    I watch you tube Videos a lot. I've been using Opera for a year and it was really fast and nice. But since a months ago it started slowing down you tube on page load and crasheing when watch video for every 2-5 minutes.
    Thanks for the reply.

  • YouTube still uses Flash if it can't use HTML5 for any reason.

  • Hi davehawley

    I've found out the solution of Opera crashes when watch Youtube videos and Others.

    !. clean up the dust at all the Fan,CPU mount and RAM Bus lines.

    2.Opera---Extension ------Get extension--get-Flash® Player for YouTube™ ENABLE it.

    Very Important :Do not check mark to Allow in private mode   and Allow access to file URLs
    1. Go to Menu ----Setting----Websites
      Check mark on Detect and run important plug-in content (recommended)

      ****** ENABLE ---Widevine Content Decryption Module.
      DISABLE ---Crome PDF viewer and Adobe flash player,
      DISABLE Video pop out and Pop-ups

      ENABLE--BLOCK ADS (Menu ---Setting---Basic)

    The Opera crashes when watch video must be CLASHES between Widevine Content Decryption Module and Adobe flash player.
    You have choices to disable either one of them. But I 've found Widevine Content Decryption Module
    is BETTER in Streaming Video and more POWERFUL.

    Now I am enjoying Youtube videos and other on lines videos
