Youtube stopping and starting when opera is not the top window.

  • Youtube stopping and starting when opera is not the top window.

    Whenever I'm playing slay the spire or whatever the youtube video I'm watching will start and stop. It's not a buffering issue, I assure you. My phone does something similar when it's cache and storage space is full, maybe it's something like that? I'm not really technically minded I just wanna listen to my post hardcore without opening another browser.

  • @aoiggky It stops completely? Or just the video stops while the audio keeps playing?

  • @leocg it plays about 5 seconds and then stops for 5 seconds and continues that way. The video and audio don't seem to get out of sync, but it only happens when I'm not watching it, because im looking at a different fullscreen window. I can browse other tabs and have it play normally. Just seems to happen when I have any other fullscreen programs open, and opera is not the top window. I might be able to make a video of it if you want.

  • @aoiggky If you are watching a video and go to a different tab or window, making the tab with the video to be out of focus, then the video stops while the audio keeps playing and that's an expected behavior. That's why I asked.

  • @leocg Yea, that's not the problem I'm having. It's just whenever I'm using a fullscreen program that is not Opera, the music I'm listening to on youtube will start and stop evenly in intervals of about 5 seconds.
