Facebook gif and videos

  • How to check it?

  • Ok found, there is -> Gpu process: 104mb (morless)

    I just don't understand those " : " should be something written after it?

  • In opera://gpu/ do you see any error message in 'Log Messages'?

    Check opera://media-internals/ while trying to play a video to see if it gives you some clue on the problem.

    No, I hear only the sound

    Did you ever installed a codec pack? If not, can you play that video on Windows Media Player?

  • [1213/224926:ERROR:angle_platform_impl.cc(33)] : ANGLE Display::initialize error 5: DXGI 1.2 required to present to HWNDs owned by another process.
    [1213/224926:ERROR:gl_surface_egl.cc(612)] : eglInitialize D3D11 failed with error EGL_NOT_INITIALIZED, trying next display type

    [1213/233819:ERROR:gl_surface_egl.cc(612)] : eglInitialize D3D11 failed with error EGL_NOT_INITIALIZED, trying next display type

    There are the log messages errors.

    I didn't install any codec.

    I can't play that video on Windows player, but i can play it on VLC. Anyway the codec problem could somehow be related to gif images too? Cuz i don't see them also.

  • I can't play that video on Windows player

    That's why you can't play it in Opera. Opera depends on the OS (Windows) to play (some) proprietary codecs, so if Windows can not play the video then Opera will also not be able to do it.

  • Yea but windows can play Gif, why Opera, on facebook, can't?

  • Yea but windows can play Gif, why Opera, on facebook, can't?

    Because gifs on Facebook are actually mp4 videos.

  • Ok, I installed K-Lite, clean the cache, restarted pc. The mp4 video you linked me before can be easily viewed now with windows media player, but still not in Opera (as well as Fb videos and gifs) more ideas?

  • Windows needs to be able to play it natively for Opera to can play the video.

  • So there's just no solution?

    Install a new Windows version, maybe.
