Videos always buffering

  • Hello,

    When i use Opera for some surfing and while watching some videos, they always buffer/freeze constantly.
    The problem happens in Youtube and Twitch. In youtube the image stops for 2/3 seconds and then continues, constantly. In Twitch the problem persist.

    I have the latest Adobe Flash Player installed. Opera 24.0.1558.64.

    Any help?

  • Maybe your internet speed is slow. Have you tested it? How you tried other browsers with the sites in question. When I go to YouTube in Opera 24, it's always been fine for me. I assume you don't have turbo mode active. It should not be on.

  • Have you tried the ppapi flash player?

  • Like Lem says, What other browsers have you tried ? Do the videos buffer in other browsers ? For purposes of comparison, it would be helpful to know if this problem occurs in other browsers, that would narrow it down, I doubt it's a problem specific to opera though, possibly internet speeds like Lem says. I have to add though, the last time I used Opera, I had no problem with Youtube videos.

  • Hi,

    My connection is good and if i use other browsers (forgot to mention it in the 1st post) this problem doesn't occur. I used Chrome and Chromium, all fine with them.

    With Opera Twitch is always buffering and has freezes while watching the stream, the same goes for youtube.

    @leocg, what you mean by ppapi flash player? I have the Adobe Flash Player installed.

    Ppapi is a new plugin architecture. You can download ppapi flash here.

    Be sure to download the correct one and to turn off Npapi flash on opera:plugins.
