[Solved]How do i enable plugins in opera 44?

  • Cant seem to enable plugins for opera, i looked through all the settings i see no way to enable plugins, have they been removed from opera like firefox and chrome? cant install java or anything.

  • Plugins

    Java it's not available.

  • Man why is every browser ditching Java? geez i may need to use IE

  • Man why is every browser ditching Java?

    Oracle is dropping Java plug-in.

    Also, the future of the web is - or should be at least - plug-in free.

  • Java plugins are dead. The developer is dropping support, all current browsers are dropping support, it has been a long time coming. Just stop using websites that were designed in 2008 and you won't even need it anymore.

  • But how do you even access the plugins page now all I get with opera://plugins is this site can't be reached

  • There is none, Chromium removed it.

    Plugins page has been removed by Chromium since it became kinda obsolete.

    There are sections for Flash and PDF viewer in Settings.

    For Widevine you can use opera://components.

    im trying to watch netflix and it says that Widevine is disabled, how would I enable it?

  • how would I enable it?

    It's enabled by default and can't be disabled.

    Anyway you can try checking opera://components/

  • Everyone here seems to tell me, that it's a good thing the opera:plugins page has been removed.

    I say: nonsense!

    For instance flash-player. It could happen, when installing the latest PPAPI-flash-plugin, all of a sudden certain online-videos couldn't play anymore because of damn area-restrictions from some tv-station-websites (e.g. ad-financed preview videos).

    In that case I had to revert to the previous flash-PPAPI until the blunder was fixed (usually 1 or 2 versions later).

    Now, without the Menu/Developers/plugins overview, I cannot even tell which build of flash-PPAPI is actively installed, let alone disable it selectively for pages with conflicts between flash and "shockwave"-videos.

    So, before uninstalling and reverting to previous flash version because of crappy latest build, how can I now at least tell the version number of the version currently installed??

    The only third part plug-in supported by Chromium is Flash and having a page for it when you can change its settings in the Settings page is what I would call nonsense. ๐Ÿ™‚

    It doesn't make sense to me. If a video on a page has view restrictions and can only be watched from a certain place, using a new or an old version of Flash will not change it.

    how can I now at least tell the version number of the version currently installed??

    Windows' Control Panel or this Adobe's page

    Anyway, version of Flash should not be something relevant for the regular user.

    BTW, the main issue of this topic has been resolved so closing it.
