Possible bug in Opera 56.0.3051.43 - screen sharing in Google Hangouts stopped working.

  • Windows 7 64 bit, Opera 56.0.3051.43 64-bit, all extensions disabled. Transmitting and receiving both voice and video is working, but when trying to share your screen, nothing happens. To reproduce:

    1. Start Google Hangouts call.
    2. Click "..." button and then "Share screen".
    3. A pop-up dialog appears to select from sharing the entire screen (and select the monitor) or share the single application window.
    4. Select blue button "Share".
    5. Nothing happens.
    6. You are only able to exit by clicking "Cancel" or "x" button in the pop-up dialog.

    This started to happen with 56.0.3051.35, I have upgraded today to the latest version 56.0.3051.43 in hope that this will fix the issue, but unfortunately this is not fixed.
