[Bug] Videos stop playing repeatedly when using the pop-out option

  • Hiya,

    I have recently started to use Opera to watch video streams, because of the pop-out option. But whenever I use it the video runs for a random amount of time and then suddenly stops. The video in the browser window always shows that there has been a network/connection problem. Then I have to restart the video and find that spot where it stopped again to continue.
    But when I run the video only in the browser window without the pop-out it runs just find from start to end. It is not limited to a certain streaming site, but affects all of those I have tested.

    Reproduction: Go to a video streaming site for example, gorillavid or others that stream TV-shows or movies. Start video, click the pop-out thingy and wait until it happens.

    Actual result is as posted above. Video stops with connection or network errors. Sometimes once a video, sometimes several times.

    Expected result: The video should run through.

    OS: Windows 10

    Version of Opera: 40.0.2308.81

    Thank you!
