Flash blocker ?

  • Hello,

    I installed Opera 23 and switched from Firefox. (Windows7/64)
    Impossible to play any track from Soundcloud.
    I get this warning :
    "It looks like you have a Flash blocker browser setting or extension. Please enable Flash to hear this"
    No extension.
    Where is this setting hidden?
    (Soundcloud works perfectly with IE or Firefox)
    Thanks for your help !

  • Hello.

    Do you have Opera Turbo enabled? If so, please disable it from Opera's main menu. Opera Turbo blocks Flash and other plugins automatically. Also, if it doesn't help type ''opera:plugins'' (without quotes) in the address bar and look if Shackwave Flash is enabled.

  • Opera Turbo blocks Flash and other plugins automatically.

    I haven't ever seen my turbo blocking anything.
    When you refer to nuOpera, wouldn't it be proper to say "OffRoad"? I don't know if it blocks something.

  • They renamed it back to Turbo, Josh ...

    Shackware? 23 uses Adobe Flash.

    That's it !
    Disabling turbo solved the problem.
    Thanks ! 🙂

    It hasn't been blocking anything in my truOpera so far!..

  • Josh,

    Does your "anything" include Soundcloud tracks ?

    For me it blocks nothing but Soundcloud.

    Could you test this link, with and without Turbo :

    No, I don't have any.
    I broke in because of Joe's words that "Opera Turbo blocks Flash and other plugins".
    Sorry for possible misunderstanding, but I got curious if they'd done something to "Turbo/OffRoad" that it would take on blocking stuff. Haven't heard any such thing before...

  • That's why I'm interested to know if there is anyone else having the same problem with Soundcloud.
    There was no misunderstanding from me...
    And the same Soundcloud/Opera Turbo issue occurs on 4 PC's, 1xXP, 1xVista and 2 Win7.

    @joshl, It's not actually a ''block'', when I say ''blocks plugins automatically'' I mean it creates a Click-to-play that doesn't let the plugins run automatically (only if you click on it). It ''blocks'' Flash, Silverlight, PDF plugins, etc. Sorry for creating confusion.

  • Shackware? 23 uses Adobe Flash.

    @sgunhouse, yes, I know, but if you look down it's called Shockwave Flash. It was a mistake...

    It's good to know that, thanks.
