Problem with hardware acceleration

  • Hello,

    When switching tabs while watching a video/stream (for example on YouTube or Twitch) that video will start flickering. The only way to fix it is to stop/restart the video or refresh the page.

    This only happens with Hardware Acceleration turned on. I tried to disable it and the problem is gone, but the video becomes very laggy, mostly when at 60FPS.

    Is this a known issue? Is there a fix for it?

    I'm on W10 Anniversary Update, Opera vesion
