    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???

  • I think the problem with the side bar on youtube not showing up might be the fact that I am using a laptop and the item size level of windows 8 is set to 125%. This setting is causing many problems in many websites when using opera (doesnt happen with other browsers). This is probably just one more problem to the list.

  • it doesn't seem to work on those sites

    That is not a helpful description of the problem. You will need to give us more information if you want help. Also, have you tried the private window thing I mentioned above?
