Weird Youtube Problem

  • Hey guys,
    for quite a while I've been fighting with a strange problem regarding Youtube.

    So I open a youtube video and it gives me the black playback window in the middle and starts buffering (I can see the grey bar moving). Also I can see this loading circle thing moving. But then: nothing happens. After a while Youtube shows me a message like "If playback won't start momentarily, try reloading the page". So I try reloading and Opera crashes. Keeps telling me "not responding" for 10-15 seconds, goes black for a moment and then comes back and starts playing the video as if nothing had happened.

    This happens in about 90% the cases I try to play a Youtube video. Couldn't reproduce the problem with any other browser, so I've absolutely no idea on how to deal with that.

    Any suggestions? Thanks for your help!

    Greetings from Germany,

  • I'm using Opera Version 42.0.2393.85 on a Windows 10 machine and the latest Flash Player update.

  • Does the same happen in a private window? Did you try disabling your extensions, if any? You can also try with a portable instance of Opera, so you are not affected by any possible configuration issue.

  • Same thing happens to me, also when playing a video it sometimes stops, turns the screen black and then goes back like 5 seconds and resumes.
