[Solved]All system sound is muted when i pause a video

  • Okay, i don't know any keywords to help me solve this issue and i need to asked here.
    It happens when i let opera playing youtube music on the background while playing games.
    and everytime all my sounds is muted when it switch to other video. and if the auto-play stop, my sound would not recover unless I tinker around the system tab in window and manually disable-enable the sound.
    I tried on the chrome and it is not the problem, so i think this is something based on the opera, could anyone help me know whats wrong with it?
    In case you want to know what i tested on chrome,

    1. i play a video on opera and chrome together
    2. i pause the chrome, opera still playing sound
    3. i turn chrome back again, mute opera, everything muted.
    4. i turn chrome on again, still muted
    5. i pause chrome, turn opera off and on again, sound comes back
  • Goto the URL opera://flags/#hardware-media-key-handling, disable the flag and restart Opera.

    If that doesn't help, also disable opera://flags/#enable-media-session-service.
