Opera GX low memory on Instagram Reels only

Hello, does anyone know where the problem might be? I'm using Opera GX, and all videos work fine except for Instagram Reels. When I'm on the Instagram homepage and scroll, everything plays, including in direct messages when someone sends me a Reel. However, it only happens when I click directly on a Reels icon (instagram.com/reels). It takes a long time to load, doesn't display the Reel preview, and after a minute, Opera tells me there's insufficient memory. Sometimes, the Reels start playing, but the play button gets stuck in the middle, even though the Reel is playing. As soon as I watch 2-3 videos, it freezes, and even refreshing (F5) doesn't help. So, I assume there's something wrong with the codecs or the web player itself?. I've been dealing with this issue for a while now, and I've tried various fixes such as repairing codecs, automatic allocation of virtual memory, disabling browser extensions reinstalling opera, disabling hardware acceleration and battery save mode even deleted all cookies and cache. Everything is up to date (Win 11, bios, drivers, apps) and I have 24GB of RAM. I'm using a 100mb/s cable internet connection with a ping of 8-12ms.
