  • Greetings,

    Recently Opera stopped playing (especially YouTube) videos, I had to reload the page a few times so it would play properly.
    I didn't pause/stop the video myself if you'd think that.
    I haven't changed any settings, I don't know what happened.
    Can someone please help?

    Thanks in advance.

  • What version of Opera and what OS? Do videos play with extensions disabled? What about with a clean profile folder?

    Youtube videos play fine here on Windows 10.

  • Version: 48.0.2685.52 (PGO)
    Update stream: Stable
    System: Windows 8.1 64-bit

    PS: I haven't noticed that there is an update so it seems like I've been using an outdated version, is that the source of the problem? I'll make sure to check more frequently next time then.

  • @hjwdesign A new version means that bugs were solved so, yes, running an old version could mean running into issues. Just don't know if it would be the case of this one.

  • Well, it probably was. I'll check if there are further issues with video playing, I should've thought of updating, it's too obvious 😝 .
    Thanks anyways,
    Have a good day.
