Youtube displays an error on every video.

  • It may be Google throwing their weight around since it never arose in Chrome, but Mozilla had it in Firefox and they fixed it. The error looks like this:

    alt text

    And it causes a 5 second delay while displaying this error for every video you open from a search, a link, or, well, clicking. Clicking stuff on the web to display them should work in a browser.

    This IS a minor inconvenience - for someone who's a webdev and knows to wait it out. Please no "support" type answers, just a "we're aware and we're fixing it" would be good. 🙂 A browser must work with Youtube. I would very much like to continue using the Opera browser also for Youtube. Upgraded to 70.0 but has been the same for weeks.

    I have obviously used Youtube's own worthless support tool to let them know their website isn't working and accusing them of either muscling out competing Chromium browsers or not competent enough to make their site work on the major browsers.

  • @leocg I wrote all that, and you didn't read any of it? You are talking to a web developer. Get with it. Or get someone who can answer for you. This must work. If some built in extension makes Youtube not work, you must fix it. AdBlock is not the cause, I tested this for you. Others might not test at all and just conclude, "oops, Youtube doesn't work. nice knowing you Opera" >> uninstall. Get it?

  • @henrikerlandsson Did you do all the steps before posting? What are the examples of pages where you see the problem happening? What are the steps to try to reproduce the problem? What's the OS?

    YouTube works fine in Opera here by the way.
