[Solved] Shockwave Problem on Opera 41.0.2353.69 Win 7

  • Hi,

    I downloaded Shockwave Full by using your guidelines but my Opera still not detecting the plug-in. It detects Flash but not this.

    I tried to use this,

    ---Download and install the plug-in.
    Close and restart Opera so that the plug-in is detected. The plug-in should be listed under Page > Developer Tools > Plug-ins.
    In some cases, you may need to configure Opera so that it can find the plug-in. To do this, add the directory containing the plug-in to the plug-in path. From the Opera menu, select Settings > Preferences > Advanced > Content, click Plug-in options, then Change path.

    To be certain that Opera will use the plug-in and not an alternative application, go to Settings > Preferences > Advanced > Downloads , and select the mime-type associated with the plug-in. Click Edit, and make sure that Use plug-in is marked appropriately. ---

    From this page, http://www.opera.com/docs/plugins/installation/

    But I don't have that, my plug in options doesn't have a change path option, or content. And I think Preferences became Settings and I have advanced options on. This is all I got relating plug-ins.

    ---Run all plug-in content

    Detect and run important plug-in content (recommended)

    Click to play

    Do not run plug-ins by default
    Manage exceptions…
    Learn more
    Manage individual plug-ins…----

    I don't know what to do and I'd appreciate any help, thanks.

  • From this page, http://www.opera.com/docs/plugins/installation/

    Those instructions are for Opera Presto (Opera 12 and older) and are not valid for Opera Blink.

    Does Shockwave have a ppapi version? If yes, just download and install that version.
    If it doesn't have a ppapi/pepper version then it will not work with Chromium based browsers.

  • Shockwave is an old NPAPI type plugin.
    They haven't been supported on any Chromium-based browsers for quite a while now.
    You will have to use Internet Explorer or Firefox with that plugin I'm afraid.
    The last Chromium-based browser you can use AFAIK is Slimjet 10, which is based on Chromium 50 and supports NPAPI.
    :)

    I'm pretty sure there is no PPAPI version of the Shockwave Player plugin, Adobe only produced a PPAPI version of the Flash plugin.

  • Oh thanks, I'll use IE then that's fine.

    I never realised it didn't support.

    Shame, but oh well! Have a great day! @davehawley @leocg
    :happy:
