YouTube will stop supporting Opera GX?

I think not. In the end, Opera is not the old MS Edge engine, which had no prospects, but Opera has been using its own for a long time, I think that there is no point in doing this because closing YouTube to the browser, which has been working normally for decades, is too stupid on the part of Google. If you disable YouTube in the GX, then in normal Opera, it will also stop working, because the basis is one, just the features and the cover is different.

Well ,,,, really Opera is using the same engine as Chrome (and in fact as the new Edge); it is hard for Youtube not to support that. They may (and have before) block Opera as something they haven't tested, but that isn't the same as "not supporting it". Any user-agent switcher can bypass such a block, and the site will work fine as long as you have the right codecs in your system. (There are some versions of Windows that ship with limited codecs and may require additional codecs installed, but that is Windows and not Opera itself.)
