Youtube Video not visible only Audio

  • Okay Guys,

    I am coming here for your suggestion on how to fix this.

    It is happening from the last 2 days. Youtube videos are not viewable in Opera.

    I have the latest version 27.0.1689.76 and even recently updated the Adoble flash player 16.0.0305.

    It happens like this,

    I open the Youtube video page, initially the buffering icon comes up and then it starts playing but I see the same blackbox(where the video plays in the youtube page) and there is no video playing, I can hear Audio and could see the Timeline and video download progressing.

    But I am able to view other video streaming sites like Dailymotion, Metacafe etc.

    I am not sure why this is happening.

    Please provide a fix guys.

  • Works fine on Windows 7 (x64) with Opera 27.0.1689.76 and Flash Player 16.0.0305.

    May be it is a problem of hardware acceleration?
    Alt P
    Scroll down
    Deactivate Hardware accelaration
    Restart Opera

  • Yes, I tried it by right clicking on Youtube video playing and it worked......

    Thanks bro

    Does it has something to do with my discrete graphic card sometimes failing?

    May be it is a problem the graphics card's driver. In older Opera times it was alawys a problem of driver or hardware accelaration if the vieo was not shown.
    Try to get last graphic card driver for your hardware.

    Thanks bro
