[Solved]Help with the keybord 'Play/Pause' button

  • Hello.
    I really like Opera but one thing that is bugging me out is that I'm always listening to music and often with a video open in some random tab. And I like the play/pause button in my keybord to manipulate just the music, never the video. And what always happens is that I would play the music and the random video would play as well.
    I looked in the keyboard shortcut section in options and couldn't find the solution,
    Thank you.

  • I don't know if it'll work for your specific situation, but goto the URL chrome://flags/#hardware-media-key-handling, disable it, relaunch Opera and try again.

    Also, you could also try going to the URL opera://settings/content/sound and disabling sound. Then, for sites you want to allow sound, you can click the badge at the left of the address field, goto site settings and adjust the sound setting for just that site. That can stop autoplay by default and allow it for sites you want.

  • That worked perfectly! Thank you very much! 🙂

  • I use Opera now a while (a few years) and there is one function that really really annoys me. When i use my Play and Pause button on my keyboard I DONT want it to pause my Videos and streams or anything else in my browser. I just want it for Spotify (App not Webplayer). Would be great if someone would know how to disable it completely in the browser.

  • Whenever I pause my music in another program with Opera opened, a menu shows up in the top left of the screen next to the volume showing any video in the browser; something from Youtube or some random thing on Reddit. How can I get rid of this?

  • When using mouse scroll or keyboard to adjust the speakers volume, Opera shows this big pop-up volume panel. It is completly useless . How can I turn off this pop-up. Please see the attachement.
    Thanks for some help.

  • While I was waching a video from youtube or some other website on opera, when I turn the volume on and off the keyboard, near the volume icon what I show in the photo comes out everytime. How do I remove this?
