Audio (radio) stream skipping, stuttering

  • Hi,

    I am new to Opera and have enjoyed it so far, compared to other browsers. One thing that has been a bit of an annoyance is that the audio live stream (WNYC) that I listen to each day is constantly skipping/stuttering, etc. I have updated my Flash, but still having the same issue. It doesn't seem to happen on other sites like soundcloud, as far as I can tell thus far.

    Any tips anyone could give would be greatly appreciated!!

    Version: 45.0.2552.888 - Opera is up to date
    Update stream: Stable
    System: Mac OS X 10.11.6 64-bit

  • Welcome to Opera's forums @Levity03!

    It seems working fine here, no Flash installed.

    Check with a Private window Ctrl+Shift+N, and / or a clean profile.

  • Thanks.

    I have just tried a Private window, which didn't work.

    The "clean profile" you linked lists instructions for Windows. Is there an option for Mac?

    Anything else you can think of that will mitigate the issue?

  • There is no yet a FAQ for MacOS but the steps are the basically the same, for more info read here.

  • This didn't work. This is the only station that skips like this -- it's a live stream, but never did this on Chrome/Safari. Is there anything else I can do?
