Video Pop-Out broken (again)

  • @oelmensch I found the solution there! I enable -Override software rendering list- and disable -Use surface layers in Video Pop-out-

    it seems works fine on youtube and other streaming sites!

  • @molenin Volume change is already available in Opera developer 68, so it's just a matter of time for it to reach stable channel.

  • @hrfast The volume control isn't a main problem. It's ugly overall copared with original pop-out. I don't like shadow upon mouse over, I want to see fullscreen and small screen at the same time...

  • @aibenq Just remember that it may stop working at any time.

  • @oelmensch It doesn't work.
    I made a try in the Opera Developer: 69.0.3630.0.

    OldStyle Pop-Out.
    opera:flags#video-pop-out-surface-layers: Disable
    Black pop-out window, video is in the main window.

    New style shit.
    opera:flags#video-pop-out-surface-layers: Enable
    Black main window, video is in the pop-out window.

    Do nothing at all:
    --disable-gpu-compositing
    --disable-direct-composition-layers
    --disable-direct-composition

    am glad ya got things work 'n..

    but am confused and i do not mean to despute what ya said -

    ya said this that ya - (disabled -Use surface layers in Video Pop-out)
    What version of opera did ya disabled this flag in.. *just ask'n..

    the reason i ask is i think version 66.0.3515.115 was last version for the old style pip was working..

    if ya disable that flag in the newer version of opera the (Video Pop-out)
    will be black and non work 'n except for sound perhaps..

    if ya set the flag @ (default or Enabled) ya get the new (Video Pop-out)..

    if ya got the old style PIP work 'n in the latest opera version do tell and show how.. *thankyou in advance..

  • @molenin

    Same Problem without solution... the new Pop-Out Style is really shit...

    I don't understand why they deleted the old style and didn't make it freely selectable...

    Is there a way to deactivate the autoupdate so that I can use a older version with the old style where it still works properly?

  • @Sart It was already explained why the change had to be made. Regarding autoupdate, check the FAQ.

  • @leocg

    Why was it removed? I can't find an answer here????

    Also i dont understand why, it is not at least improved that the position and size are saved in the popup with the new style...

    And I have not found any instructions to disable the auto update function, only rename opera_autoupdate.exe, but this dont work

  • @Sart Renaming the autoupdater should work but you need to do it before the autoupdate happens. So basically:

    • Downlaod the offline installer of an old version
    • Turn off your internet connection
    • Run the installer
    • Rename the opera_autoupdate.exe in the related sub-folder in Opera's installation directory
    • Turn on your internet connection
