opera won't play video on facebook, netflix, other sites, except youtube

  • hi, i'm having a problem with opera not playing videos on multiple sites. i also cannot listen to voice records in messenger. i have a freshly installed windows 10 enterprise, flash player is working, tried reseting everything on opera, i have my drivers automatically installed by Driver Booster, and i did everything i found on related topics, but nothing works. anyone has been experiencing the same issue or can help me?

  • I've found that more and more sites are becoming an issue with being browser specific and/or Adblocker aware. You may be experiencing something like that.

    First thing you can try is to install the extension User-Agent Switcher - the icon looks like a world globe attached to a network line. With a simple click, this allows you to make your Opera browser emulate and other type of browser. For example: Hulu doesn't like Opera and it will tell you that your browser is not supported. But if I use the switcher to make my Opera look like Microsoft Edge, it has no problem using Hulu.

    If that doesn't work for the problem sites, just try turning off your Adblocker for that site ...if you trust the site and see it that works. Sometimes, that's all it takes.

    windows 10 enterprise

    From past discussions on this, it appears that the enterprise version of Windows 10 doesn't have the media support that Opera needs and uses to play proprietary audio/video codecs. "N" versions have the same issue. However, they can be fixed with https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/mediafeaturepack. But, that doesn't work for the enterprise version. There may be a workaround for enterprise, but no one so far has found one. You need home or pro edition unless you can find out why enterprise doesn't have the right support and how to add it.
