Playing Youtube Videos in Opera Private Window

  • I've just switched to Opera from Firefox.

    Today I tried watching a youtube video in an Opera private window and got a warning message that Google does not permit watching videos in private mode and will track all my youtube activity.

    Opera offered me a choice between two options, but I can't recall now exactly what they were. I selected one at random to see what would happen, and then was asked if I wanted Opera to remember my choice. I selected yes.

    Nothing of note seemed to happen as a result of the option I chose, but now I'm wondering what the difference between those two options is, and where I can find them in the settings.

  • You should ask in a Youtube and/or Google forum, since the message comes from them and Opera has nothing to do with it.

    Also, I never saw such message when watching any Youtube video in a private window. So, unless that message is triggered by geographic location, it may be interesting to check your system for malwares.

    BTW, see https://forums.opera.com/topic/23068/instructions-on-posting-about-problems-in-opera-for-computers

  • Thanks, leocg! I appreciate the speedy reply.
