Can't see videos!

  • I got this browser a couple of months ago, and am pretty unhappy with it...mainly, I have been unable to see hardly any videos since getting this...I have real player and adobe downloaded, but still cant' watch any videos. What's wrong?

  • Can you post a link to a video that's not working and explain what is exactly doing in your case? Did you try Chrome and they work there?

  • What's wrong?

    Please read this and post the necessary info here.

  • Re: link to what it's doing...I get various messages on different videos. I don't have chrome.

  • RE: link for posting about problems. I'll read this asap, and try to find a link with specific won't play messages, but it happens across the board. Are Java and Norton related to Opera/seeing videos, b/c I did not renew Norton(too much money) and I may have removed java. Sorry, I don't know the technical indepth info about this stuff. All I know is, when I was using Explorer, I wasn't having as much problem. I have an HP mini(hand-me-down). Thanks.

  • Are Java and Norton related to Opera/seeing videos

    Java has no relation to videos and isn't supported since version 34. Norton and any other antivirus/security suite may block access to pages/elements/etc so it may be a good idea to test with it disabled.

    I have real player

    Does it still exists? 🙂

    I have been unable to see hardly any videos since getting this

    Flash based videos, html5 videos or both?

    What happens when you try to watch a video?

  • Hello. I started this question. Today I re-loaded Adobe flash player and even though the installer acknowledged my Opera browser, it loaded to Explorer, and when I switch over to explorer, the flash player works fine. How do I get it to load on Opera?

  • How do I get it to load on Opera?

    Did you install Flash for Opera? Is Opera your default browser?
