Opera 12 freeze for 5 seconds when youtube video starts

  • Hello!
    I am desperate, every time I start any youtube clip my Opera 12 freeze for 5-10 seconds! This problem occur only on Opera 12, I dont have this problem with new version of Opera but i dont want to use it, I would like to stay with Opera 12.

    I think that something is crashing with flash player but i dont know what to do. PLS HELP!

  • I just repair it 😃 subject to delete

  • Is YouTube using Flash or HTML5?
    You can check this by right clicking on the video window.
    If it is using Flash make sure you only have one Flash plugin installed in the plugins list (Tools>Advanced>Plug-ins).
    EDIT: OK, glad you fixed it! What was wrong?

  • Options - Preferences - Advanced - last checkbox
    I think that that was a problem because now every video is loading normally 🙂

  • What was the checkbox labelled as?

  • I dont know how to translate this in english but something about miniatures in cards, first big option in advanced preferences. First from the top, last checkbox

  • Enable thumbnails in tabs ?.

  • It certainly sounds like that option from the description of the label and where it is in the menu!
    Why that should affect YouTube videos I have no idea.

  • Why that should affect YouTube videos I have no idea.

    Probably because having thumbnails in tabs are pretty much like having duplicate (mini) copies of each tab that is open being rendered in real-time, which is probably slowing the browser down, especially the youtube one/s.
