I'm getting really sick and tired of the buggy Opera. It's again like it was on previous presto based builds.
Granted, dev channel can have issues, but now O18 has been released on the Next channel there is no excuse.
I've tried hopping on the HTML5 youtube test and off again - No change.
The resolution is always at 360p and cannot be set higher, even if the video itself offers 720p or 1080p.
I use Internet Download Manager to download the video, and it correctly lets me choose from all available resolutions.
Please some comment from any Opera dev? Will this be fixed anytime soon?
OK got it going now. For those with the HTML5 mess, do this:
Right click on the video and choose "about HTML5" or something.
You will be asked to join the HTML5 Trial. If you are not on the trial, JOIN FIRST.
After that, LEAVE the trial.
If you are already on the trial, just choose LEAVE.
In Opera, choose settings-Privacy and Security-Clear browsing data.
Close Opera, and open it again.
Play a video - Opera will now use Flash player.
I just saw that Chrome users also have these issues, and that's something that Opera is "inheriting" from using the same engine.
OMG, it really worked!! Thank you so much~~
