Videos in Opera flashes after updating Windows 10 to version 1803

  • @yaro1986
    For what it's worth, I've always downloaded drivers directly from manufacturers' websites, and never had any problem.
    Drivers offered by third parties, especially Microsoft, are often very out of date.

  • @yaro1986 check if opera://gpu says something about it.

  • @davehawley
    I have installed the latest drivers from Nvidia page - no result 😞
    Unfortunately I could not install the latest drivers for integrated graphic, because my notebook wouldn't let me 😕 - the message was shown that "driver compability with this device has not been checked" and I couldn't do anything, even in administrator mode.
    I give up...

    @leocg - to be honest I don't know what to do with this wall of text and symbols 😛
    Maybe it wll be helpful for you, there are some problems found0_1527354228517_Przechwytywanie1.PNG

  • @yaro1986 It seems OK. Any error listed under 'log messages'?

    GpuProcessHostUIShim: The GPU process exited normally. Everything is okay.

    It seems it is OK.
    I will do one more thing - I will install a game (cause currently I don't have any on the drive) and check if the drivers work fine with a game. If no, this will probably mean problem between drivers and updated Windows. If yes, the error have to be somehow connected with Chromium based browsers.
    Is it possible that antivirus may be a source of a problem? I recently read some news that Avast breaks something in v.1803. Personally I use ESET Internet Security, but who knows...

  • @yaro1986 It may be a Chromium issue.

  • @leocg
    OK, I have installed a game and it works fine - no blinking or low performance that could mean problems with graphic drivers.
    I give up - I will turn off the hardware acceleration in Opera and wait for updated version.
    Should I inform Opera devs about the problem?

  • @yaro1986
    It sounds like your system is fundamentally OK.
    It would be worth logging this with Opera, even if it is an issue with the Chromium engine, they will know how to pass it on to the necessary people at the Chromium project.

  • @yaro1986 If Chrome shows the same then it's probably a Chromium issue.

  • @yaro1986 i dunno if n e of this will help.. but here goes lol

    To turn this on - Native GpuMemoryBuffers = on the opera shortcut right click properties & in target field add this at the end of it - (a space 1st) --enable-native-gpu-memory-buffers

    Note - in opera settings even if ya turn on/off Use hardware acceleration when available

    Native GpuMemoryBuffers will use Hardware accelerated instead of software..

    Note - if Use hardware acceleration when available is off most of these also will be Software only. Hardware acceleration disabled..

    Canvas: Hardware accelerated
    CheckerImaging: Disabled
    Flash: Hardware accelerated
    Flash Stage3D: Hardware accelerated
    Flash Stage3D Baseline profile: Hardware accelerated
    Compositing: Hardware accelerated
    Multiple Raster Threads: Force enabled
    Native GpuMemoryBuffers: Hardware accelerated
    Rasterization: Software only. Hardware acceleration disabled
    Surface Synchronization: Enabled
    Video Decode: Software only. Hardware acceleration disabled = Software only. Hardware acceleration disabled
    WebGL: Hardware accelerated
    WebGL2: Hardware accelerated

    But in opera setting's - ya could leave Use hardware acceleration when available Enabled - and disable flags one @ a time... like ya would do with extensions if one was cause 'n troubles..

    Example - Video Decode: Software only. Hardware acceleration disabled = Software only. Hardware acceleration disabled

    Even tho Use hardware acceleration when available is Enabled - i diasabled it with flag

    Here is flag's name..

    Hardware-accelerated video decode
    Hardware-accelerated video decode where available. – Mac, Windows


    u can disable GPU rasterization and others..

    but if none helps.. in opera settings ya may be stuck with Disable - Use hardware acceleration when available..

    If ya do find a flag or two that helps.. please let us know .. thanks.

  • @nvmjustagirl
    God Almighty, this is some serious sh*t 😃 Don't have time for this today, but as soon as I find some time (and hopefully have skills to actually do it) I will tell you about the outcome.
    Thank you for taking the time to write this detailed instructions.

  • @yaro1986 i know its time comsuming.. and may be a waste of time.. i think this affects most chromium browser.. the Opera Team is limited i guess because Microsoft is the Villain !..

    seems like they have left lottsa graphic cards out that are no longer compatible with windows.. and i'd say lottsa peeps got a few opinions to say about that !..

    Btw you're welcome

  • @davehawley Thank you Dave saved me from big troubles

  • @fuad47
    You're welcome, I'm glad it helped you.
