Fox Video and Opera 23

  • I can't get Fox Video to play on Opera 23 or on the latest version of Firefox. It plays on Opera 12.17, Chrome, and Internet Explorer.

    I have the latest version of the flash player. 14.0.0.145. I went in the Opera 23 browsers and downloaded it.

    I tried the User Agent Switcher, and tried to have the Opera 23 browser look like Chrome or IE, and it made no difference. Now I can play flash. When I test my Adobe Flash Player installation, it seems to be working. https://www.adobe.com/shockwave/welcome/ I was able to play video on the ESPN site (http://espn.go.com/) and on YouTube.

    Anyone have an idea what the problem might be for Firefox and, more importantly, for Opera 23.

  • Both the fox and espn links play fine here, both in Opera and FF. My first thought is a plugin, since both browsers can share the same ones. I'd try disabling all to check.

  • Thanks for repsponding, though I don't follow the idea of disabling the plugins. The espn site, http://espn.go.com/, plays video in both Firefox and Opera 23. The problem is that the Fox Video site doesn't play in Firefox or Opera 23, though it plays in Chrome, IE and Opera 12.17. I don't see what disabling Opera 23's plugins would have to do with the fact. And my plugins on Opera are exactly the same as in Opera 22, when the site played.

    However, I disabled all of my Opera plugins except for Adobe Flash, and the Fox videos still didn't play in Opera 23. Now I do use Windows 7, 64 bit, if that makes any difference. If anyone has any other ideas, please post here.

  • Have you tried disabling all extensions too? (especially the Chrome ones). It could be a conflict of extensions with the recently updated browser, because all works fine over here: http://s30.postimg.org/5cdqo4jox/US_imposes_new_economic_punishments_on_Russia.jpg

    Thanks. That was a good idea. Problem solved.

    Only it wasn't a Chrome extension, but an Opera one, "https everywhere." (That extension, though, is probably in the Chrome store too, but the Opera store carries it, and that's where I got it. I have that extension for both Firefox and Opera 23. So when I deactivated it in Opera 23, and in Firefox, the Fox Videos work in both browsers. Now I think that extension is useful, so I posted the problem on the Opera add-on website (for their extension). Hopefully, they'll get it working.
