Error with Tab preview and Youtube

  • Hello,

    I have the following opera version:

    Opera 24.0

    Version information

    Version: 24.0.1558.53 - Checking for updates...
    Update stream: Stable
    System: Windows 7 64-bit (WoW64)
    Browser identification

    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/37.0.2062.94 Safari/537.36 OPR/24.0.1558.53


    Install: C:\Program Files (x86)\Opera
    Profile: \AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Stable
    Cache: \AppData\Local\Opera Software\Opera Stable

    In this version of Opera we can preview the tab by placing the mouse over the tab.

    But whenever I am watching a video on youtube and then place the mouse over the tab to preview another tab but I dont change the tab, but remain in the same in which Youtube is being played, the video on youtube become "Black" as in I can hear the sound but the video screen goes black.

    To come out of this condition I need to just scroll up / down once and instantly the video is restored.

    Can somebody tell me is this a bug in Opera or is it because of youtube developer tools being enable??
