Does Opera fully support HTML5 video?

  • I recently visited some sites that seemed to use HTML5 videos and they were not loading. One site, clearly said that I was using the HTML5 version of a video and it was not working. The flash version worked, of course.
    Does Opera not support HTML5 videos? And, if not: When does the HTML5 support come? We're already at version 26 and in Chrome it works since I can remember it existed.

  • Just ask Youtube ...

    When I visit the above page in Windows, the only box that has a problem is the combination MSE + H.264 box (the results would be different in Linux).

  • Just tested it and it works. I remember a time some weeks before where YouTubes HTML5 player didn't work. Maybe it was a problem with YouTube and not Opera. Seems there was a problem with streamcloud. Thank you for the quick answer.
    I just revisited the site were a video did not load and it was a flash video indeed, still wondering why that won't load.
