I don't know your full setup but have you tried setting WebRTC (3rd section in Privacy & security) to "Disable non-proxied UDP"?
You might lose voice-chat in the web version of Discord but it's worth a shot.

Some more that show the problem for me.
The audio cuts out at 9 seconds (for all of them) and then comes back for the last 2 seconds (on some of them).
Only the last one worked for me without dropping audio, but the audio did jump at 9 seconds for the remaining 2 seconds of the video as the length of it was 11 seconds in total.
I guess if the video was 12 seconds long instead of 11, then the 10th second would have dropped out? This seems to be the pattern.
Also all of these are mobile videos again (not sure of the operating system but I'll guess it's iOS if they're using TikTok + their age). The operating system is the next thing to find out here and also if any landscape mobile videos have this problem too (still looking for computer uploaded videos too).
Edit: At the time of writing this Twitter is flooded with videos of the Notre Dame cathedral fire. All landscape mobile videos seem to be working fine, but some vertical videos aren't. I'm not sure if it's because people are downloading them and reposting them (so Twitter reprocesses the video's audio) or if it's because of the OS the video came from.
If you wanna compare two here is a link.
Length : 56 seconds,audio is gone after 9 seconds
Length : 44 seconds, audio is perfectly fine
The first video is screencaptured on a mobile (iPhone), also horizontal.
The second video is landscape (manually pillarbox'd), possibly from a computer.
It seems the theory that the problem is with mobile recorded/processed/uploaded videos is looking true.
I'm curious to see if we can come across some landscape/horizontal videos with the audio problem.
Confirmed. And, here are some more (if you find any more, please post links):
It's a known issue (DNA-74703) and why the audio cuts out is known.
For me, the audio in the links:
The ones that work all worked immediately first time. They're all from mobile and they all look like reuploads - as in they were downloaded from the original poster's account rather directly uploaded from the app that recorded it. This could contribute to more compression of the video files and also stripping out multiple audio channels down to just 2 channels (would have perhaps even forcing 2 channels only (or even mono channel) thus fixing any issues - I say this because they worked for me for some reason).
Though, unlike the Bugzilla report on Firefox for this problem, this all sounds like it is more than just a multiple channel problem in Opera. I'm not even sure multiple channels are the issue for Opera.
I'm really curious to see if this problem is present in videos not recorded/edited/encoded/uploaded from mobile, like a trailer or a meme uploaded from a computer to Twitter or wherever.
Here are the only flags I have toggled (not that they work properly anyway, overlay scrollbar is still broken - also just noticed that taking screenshots of the flags page cuts the image in half... we're just stumbling across bugs left and right at this point ):
Here are my Windows Performance Options (which also should have no affect):
Here are my Opera settings that have worked for some when changed (mostly Chrome users?), for whatever reason (makes no difference to me, nor even sense why it would change anything) (my ad blocker is turned on):
Here are my 3 Opera extension that are enabled (extensions page also does not work well with screenshot tool):
The only solution I've read here so far is making the video full screen to hear all the audio. Not an ideal permanent solution.
It shouldn't make a difference, but try it anyway. In Opera, goto the URL
opera://flags/#autoplay-policyand set it to "No user gesture required".
Tried it, still the same.
Here's another example that I bookmarked:
Different length (1:23) yet the audio still cuts out at 9 seconds and comes back for the last 2 seconds (on the second playback).
I've noticed that it's from videos recorded & uploaded from mobile (vertical footage). Maybe they recorded it with the stock camera and uploaded it to Twitter or used the in-app camera (doubt it)?
If it is because of mobile (where the footage was recorded) then I don't know if it's the iOS's encoder or Android's encoder that Opera doesn't play well with.
The more patterns we can pull from more examples that we post, we can probably narrow down the cause.
Problem is still there. Has been here for a long time. I honestly wish there was paid version of Opera or bounty programs that would allow us to pay Opera devs so they could fix these huge bugs.
Windows 10 Edu (1803) 64-Bit
Opera 58.0.3135.127 (latest as of writing)
Audio cuts off 9 seconds in. The last 2 seconds can be heard after a second playback: https://twitter.com/xxGodsLastGift/status/1114036356576088064
Tried without ad-blocker
Tried in Opera Beta 60.0.3255.20 (no extensions) (latest as of writing)
Tried in Opera Developer 61.0.3275.0 (no extensions) (latest as of writing)
No flags touched
Tried an new user account, clean profile, same problem
Works in Chrome 73.0.3683.103, Firefox 66.0.2, and Edge 42.17134.1.0 (all latest as of writing)
On these browsers where it works, at 9 seconds the audio jumps in volume and also has a different sound to it as if it changed mics(?)
I tried replacing the files in Opera's WidevineCDM folder (C:\Users[username]\AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Stable\WidevineCDM\4.10.1196.0) with the files from Chrome's WidevineCDM folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\73.0.3683.103\WidevineCdm). Even tried replacing the whole WidevineCDM folder with Chrome's.
Still same problem.
Opera is using WidevineCDM 4.10.1196.0 while Chrome is using WidevineCDM 4.10.1303.2
This is intermittent. Some videos work fine, others don't. The video in the Tweet that I linked above fails every time in Opera and works every time in every other browser.
Twitter (and Facebook?) is almost unusable in Opera with this problem.
There's another thread on this too: https://forums.opera.com/topic/30327/twitter-videos-sound-problem
In recent updates, the ability remove search box history has now disappeared. Meaning the little x next to each search term is gone. Now I have an annoying list of terms to greet me everytime I click on on a search box on any website.
What's worse is that some search boxes will bring up search terms from search boxes on other websites I've visited. I've searched 'commandos' in Steam, 'Patents' in Google, and 'search history' in Opera Forums.
EVERY search box, on every page, on every website, will show it's own partial list of search term history. How is this possible? Where is this history kept in Opera directories? Why does Opera selectively show search history?
SOME search terms appear from YEARS ago, even if all browser history is cleared. Seriously, in what file(s) is this data bank of search terms located in the Opera directories? (sounds like it's in somewhere related to Profiles if it's persistent across Opera versions and builds).
Can we please get an option to delete search box histories in the Clear Browsing History section?
