Most Videos Won't Play in Newest Opera 18

  • Ok, on top of there not being bookmarks any longer, this newest "update" makes about 80% of all videos I've attempted to view, impossible. What's up with that?

  • Hi there 🙂 Please read this. Restart the browser, after couple of minutes patch should be applied. If that doesn't help - locate your profile directory - on Windows it's %appdata%\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Stable, on Mac delete ~/Library/Application Support/com.operasoftware.Opera/- and delete the browser.js file. Restart browser again, after 1-2 minutes file should be downloaded. We will remove the patch once YouTube will rollout their fixed version.

  • thanks mmitek, but it seems to now work ok... maybe YouTube fixed whatever was causing it.
