[Solved]accessed video through VPN, but has no sound except for ads

  • I'm using the Opera Dev. browser version 45.0.2548.0 (PGO) on a Windows 10 Pro 64-bit laptop. I'm in the United States and set the VPN to Canada to watch Video is no problem and of course I can heard the commercials without problem. However, the show's audio doesn't play.

    Is this a bug in the Opera browser, or something on the CBC side that needs to be overcome?


  • opera://media-internals/ lists no audio track for that video. If I add as an exception for Flash in Settings, the sound plays.

  • I added and [*.] to the exceptions for Flash settings, but no luck with the sound. I then tried "Allow sites to run flash", "detect and run ....", and "click to play" options. Each time, I closed Opera and reran it then accessed the link in questions. Again, no luck getting sound. Am I missing a setting?

    I did run opera://media-internals with the CBC site running. Under Players, I click on "blob:http:/" which showed:
    render_id: 24
    player_id: 1
    pipeline_state: kStopped

    Any ideas?

  • I think you don't have to close / open Opera.

    I've checked "Detect and run important flash content" and worked fine, just reloading the page.

    Good TvShow, I've saved to watch it later. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • I've just installed Opera on my work computer (Windows 7 32-bit), enabled VPN and set it for Canada. Added [*.] to the Flash settings exceptions and checked "Detect and run important flash content".

    Unfortunately, when I ran the link in a new tab, I still have no sound ... unless a commercial plays.

  • I'm not sure why, but I tried to play this site again using the latest Opera and I had video with sound this time. I tried over the past couple of days and everything worked consistently.
