Video problem

  • Hi,
    I'm having a problem with video playing. Or, two specifically.

    1. When i play youtube video on full screen, it tends to freeze and I have to press esc like crazy to exit fullscreen, then the video continues.
    2. When i play a video, especially in fullscreen (does not have to be youtube, other stuff too), it goes darker and brighter and darker as it wants to. It's really annoying.

    This does not happen when using Firefox or Chrome, so I don't think my intel setting on my T470 Thinkpad is at fault.

    Verze: 50.0.2762.58 (PGO) , Windows 10 64 bit, using these extensions:
    Citace PRO, Dashlane, Dictionary, Enhancer for youtube, Google translate, I dont care about cookies, Pocket.

  • Hi,
    Try disabling Hardware Acceleration for problem 2.

    If problem 1 Still happens, disable extensions or test on a Clean profile.

  • hey penten,
    are you using an ad blocker, if so, disable the built in opera ad blocker and use a different one (not by opera), i use ABP (ad block plus) ever since i did that, videos don't stutter or freeze anymore

  • @penten The problem still happens after those steps?
