  • When I right click it says "about adobe flash player 16

    So I assume I am using flash player - what do I do? is there something else in settings?

    ?????

  • Had a look in YOUTUBE settings but cant find anything?

    Must be something better than flash?

  • Make sure your flash player version ends with 305, which is the latest one. Also check if you are using ppapi flash (you can verify it at opera:plugins).

    Also try empty the cache and also your OS %temp% folder.

  • OK had a look in plug ins and the only thing I can find was flash 16.0.0305 is that what you mean?

    What is ppapi flash? its not there

    helps appreciated

  • What is ppapi flash? its not there

    It's a new plugin architecture. Go to http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ using Opera and download it. Don't forget to uncheck the "optional offer".

  • Thanks Leo got new flash player - seemed to be the same one? As it mentioned Opera Downloaded it and installed it

    Seems to be less video stutter pauses but still some and the voice does not sync?

    Is that the best available?

  • seemed to be the same one? As it mentioned Opera Downloaded it and installed it

    You said you only have the npapi one and Opera should download the ppapi version.

    Seems to be less video stutter pauses but still some and the voice does not sync?

    I've been noticed some issues with flash player recently. Don't know if it's a plugin issue, an Opera issue or what.

    Is that the best available?

    Don't know if the best but it's basically the only one as support for npapi is being dropped by Chromium.

  • remember to clear your cache

  • Cleared the cache and tried again on www.ted.com still delay and speach out of sync with the picture

    Went on site and downloaded from the area where it said Opera - installed - no difference

    How can I see whats going on and what flash I am using?

  • Thanks for the link Lando .... it looks like I have the latest version 305 installed

    But its still rubbish!

    Can I do anything?

  • it looks like I have the latest version 305 installed

    It's the ppapi/pepper one? It looks better if you use the html5 player?

  • Leo, dont understand was told that 305 was the ppapi version - is there any difference? If so where do I get it from?

    HTML5 can Youtube use this? if so and its better how do I set it up - looked in youtube and cant find anything? If I right click on the image it seems to show I am using flash

    Really confused - is someone can help so I get the best experience in Youtube would appreciate it

    Thanks for all your help

  • Leo, dont understand was told that 305 was the ppapi version - is there any difference? If so where do I get it from?

    Afaik both npapi and ppapi are in the same version number, or very close at least.

    You should be able to get the ppapi version at https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

    HTML5 can Youtube use this? if so and its better how do I set it up - looked in youtube and cant find anything?

    You need to enable the html5 player at https://www.youtube.com/html5

    Note that some videos may not be played in the html5 player.

  • Adobe currently maintains a NPAPI version of flash and a PPAPI version. They both have the same version number but have to be installed separately. https://forums.opera.com/post/67845 already explains what you have to do to install the right one.

    As for HTML5, yes, YouTube has an HTML5 version of the site but you have to change a setting on their site to enable it. I don't know it off the top of my head but its easy enough to google.

  • Thanks Guys ... checked the links above and think I installed the correct flash player - wot a cock up ... all having the same version number and everything!

    Flash player still not good and not sync so I tried out the suggestion above and the link to youtube let me default to html5 ..... this looks a little better ..... speech now seem to sync near enough

    Hope this default sticks next time I go in?

    Thanks again for all your help on this..... it is much appreciated.... nice to talke to the experts!! 😃

  • Have you tried disabling hardware acceleration for flash?

  • For me the youtube sidebar is no longer working after the latest update. I click on the button that makes it show up but nothing happens, only the button changes to its "sidebar visible" state.

  • Try viewing YouTube in a private window. Does that fix it?

  • Hi all;
    I have a problem viewing some video files from some sides like: u-tube, zalukaj.pl and so on... I have flush player 16 installed but it doesn't seem to work on those sides... is there a problem with new opera???
