Opera Not Playing Some YouTube Videos

  • Hi! Whenever I try playing YouTube videos in Opera in certain ways, the video won't play and instead there's an error saying "Your browser does not currently recognize any of the video formats available. (Click here to visit our frequently asked questions about HTML5 video)" I've had this problem ever since switching to Opera on Ubuntu. The main time it seems to occur is when I'm trying to watch a video in the "Liked videos" playlist. I am running the version of Opera direct from the Opera website (The .deb package) and I'm using Opera 60.0.3255.170.

  • Please read the post on my signature and one of the dozens of threads about opera's inability to play h264 streams.
    Btw, opera stable is now on version 62.x, so you should consider updating it. Not that it will solve your problem, just saying.
