Flash Player Low-Res Issue

  • Hello, I'm a new Opera user that is trying to adjust to the new browser. One problem that I've noticed is that all Flash content displays in Low-Resolution. I've updated to the latest Opera build and Flash Player build and the Flash player is still in low resolution. I've also searched around the forums and I wasn't able to find an answer! And to confirm, the Flash player in Chrome & Safari do not have this low-resolution problem. Only Opera. Please help. Thanks.

    15" Retina MacBook Pro - Opera 24.0.1558.53 - Adobe Flash 14.0.0.176

  • AFAIK NPAPI plugin doesn't scale. Have you tried using Pepper Flash (PPAPI)?

  • Not yet. Where can I obtain that?

    It comes bundled with Chrome. I don't know if there is an unbundled version of it for download.

  • Download plug-in for Mac OS X - for all PPAPI based browsers

    I know it's bundled with Chrome. But my concern is that it's low-resolution in Opera.

    Tried Flash Player 15 Beta, it's still has the low-res issue.

  • At opera:plugins (type this and press Enter in the address field), is the PPAPI one enabled and the NPAPI disabled?
    Click the "Show details" button and try setting it like that and restart Opera.

    This is what I see :(

  • Opera should have loaded the PPAPI Flash automatically but it didn't.

    Can you see files at /Library/Internet Plug-Ins/PepperFlashPlayer/ or /PepperFlashPlayer64?

    Please try running Opera using the command line parameter to find the Pepper Flash. E.g. like this: /Applications/Opera.app/Contents/MacOS/Opera --ppapi-flash-path=/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/PepperFlashPlayer(64)/

    (PS. I'm not sure you should point to the folder like above or include the filename too, maybe a .dll?)

    If you still don't see the PPAPI Flash at opera:plugins you may try to add --ppapi-flash-version=15.x.x.xxx (fill the number correctly) to the command also.

  • There is a flag in opera://flags/#find-pepper-flash-plugin (if you want to test out the Pepper Flash (maybe unstable))

    Try right clicking on the flash content and see if the quality is set to High, for videos, check the video player for an option to choose a Higher resolution video (can take more time to load)
