Youtube videos not loading

  • Hi,

    Since I upgraded my Opera browser to this latest version, Youtube videos no longer work for me. Also videos from works fine.

    I do see Shockwave Flash 11.6 r602 in opera:plugins

    Could someone please help?

  • This is what you will need if you want to solve this problem:
    Choose your operating system and select Opera 11.64. Opera 11.64 is the latest workable version of Opera, because Opera 12 and higher is extremely buggy, slow reacting, slow with loading webpages, bloated and Opera Unite, Opera Widget and Opera Voice are gone in Opera 12. Also Speed Dial is looking ugly in Opera 12.

    When I upgraded to Opera 12, Opera was crashing at all the time. Opera 11.64 doesn't have all these problems.

  • Youtube videos embedded on other sites work, but not on Youtube itself.

    Today, I also noticed pdf documents don't open in Opera as well.

    Is there an easy way for me to go back to the older version of Opera?

  • I've been having this issue all day(2.03.2013). Youtube videos posted in the past 24h in high quality are not loading, and YT thinks opera 12.14 1738 doesn't support html5... updated codecs, reinstalled opera x2 and flash players(both x32 and x64)....nothing.
    Do I have to downgrade Opera, or is this googles another experiment to piss opera users off(Firefox, chrome work with exact same videos)?

  • I've downloaded Opera next 12.14(, and the videos are working... Guess I'll be using it, until this is resolved somehow.:)

  • Attachments don't get attached on Gmail. This update really sucks 😞

  • Download the Youtube Center plug-in and disable Html5 default player so that Opera will use only Flash player
    This fixed my problem 🙂
