Even if it only happens some of the time, any links to Twitter posts where it's happened before?

I'm using another browser based on Chromium (don't know if I can say the name of it) and I have the same problem. But the thing is... it doesn't happen on any other website, only on Twitter. So it might be a Chromium bug or twitter player bug.

Look @ your WidevineCdm folder version..
is it this version 4.10.1146-96.0
if so go back to this version 4.10.1146.0

Contacted devs about this months ago.They wanted bunch of information and than said they couldn't reproduce the issue and stopped responding.I still have this problem and as they can see a lot of people also suffers from the same thing.

Problem is still there. Has been here for a long time. I honestly wish there was paid version of Opera or bounty programs that would allow us to pay Opera devs so they could fix these huge bugs.
Windows 10 Edu (1803) 64-Bit
Opera 58.0.3135.127 (latest as of writing)
Audio cuts off 9 seconds in. The last 2 seconds can be heard after a second playback: https://twitter.com/xxGodsLastGift/status/1114036356576088064
Tried without ad-blocker
Tried in Opera Beta 60.0.3255.20 (no extensions) (latest as of writing)
Tried in Opera Developer 61.0.3275.0 (no extensions) (latest as of writing)
No flags touched
Tried an new user account, clean profile, same problem
Works in Chrome 73.0.3683.103, Firefox 66.0.2, and Edge 42.17134.1.0 (all latest as of writing)
On these browsers where it works, at 9 seconds the audio jumps in volume and also has a different sound to it as if it changed mics(?)
I tried replacing the files in Opera's WidevineCDM folder (C:\Users[username]\AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Stable\WidevineCDM\4.10.1196.0) with the files from Chrome's WidevineCDM folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\73.0.3683.103\WidevineCdm). Even tried replacing the whole WidevineCDM folder with Chrome's.
Still same problem.
Opera is using WidevineCDM 4.10.1196.0 while Chrome is using WidevineCDM 4.10.1303.2
This is intermittent. Some videos work fine, others don't. The video in the Tweet that I linked above fails every time in Opera and works every time in every other browser.
Twitter (and Facebook?) is almost unusable in Opera with this problem.
There's another thread on this too: https://forums.opera.com/topic/30327/twitter-videos-sound-problem

Having the same issue since so long but now I've had it.. the audio stops after 8-9 seconds in most videos on twitter & returns at the end of video.. It's really irritating. Also making the video fullscreen solves the audio issue but freezes the video itself. What is going on!
Tried everything, only solution is to copy tweet link & watch video on other browser.
Using version 58.0.3135.127
Win 7 64bit

It shouldn't make a difference, but try it anyway. In Opera, goto the URL
opera://flags/#autoplay-policyand set it to "No user gesture required".
