I don't know your full setup but have you tried setting WebRTC (3rd section in Privacy & security) to "Disable non-proxied UDP"?

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.

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?
@sgunhouse LMAO the Overlay Scrollbar 'feature' in Opera is abysmal. It's unusable. It was like that since implementation.
Turn it on in Chrome and use it... Then turn it on Opera and try it...
It's an experimental feature that Chrome has got working flawlessly... Meanwhile, Opera... I've kept my eye on it since O50 and there's been no change.
It's been reported more than once.
Woohoo! They finally fixed it!
Apparently it's been fixed as of:
"51.0.2802.0 – 2017-12-11
DNA-65862 Video popout window proportionaly resized"
but I just tested it in the first O51 stable release today "51.0.2830.26 – 2018-02-07".
Thank You so much Opera team!
I think I can explain the problem.
First, to intentionally drag a tab to a new window, click & drag ANY tab DOWNWARDS until it pops off the tab bar (a quarter way into the address bar (43px~ from the top of the browser window)).
You can also click & drag ANY tab to the beginning of the tab bar (left) and then continue dragging left until it pops off (63px from the left edge of the browser window (until you touch the edge of the letter 'u' in the word 'O Menu' AKA 11px to the left)).
Similarly you can click & drag ANY tab to the end of the tab bar (right) and then continue dragging right until it pops off (17px~ from the edge of the '+' button).
The PROBLEM arises when someone is trying to REARRANGE the order of the tabs to either the beginning or end of the bar, their fast movement and momentum of the mouse easily goes past the narrow 11px to the left and narrow 17px to the right of the tab bar. It can also happen when dragging left or right but the mouse moves more down while dragging, after all you only have 43px~ to work with.
Solution: only allow dragging DOWNWARDS to let the tab pop off the tab bar. Will be MUCH less of a headache.

where is this magic start button and a place to type that in im on windows 10
The very bottom left corner of your screen, the icon the that looks like a window, it's the same position in all versions of Windows. Once you click on it just start typing, don't worry about anything else.
Opera homepage > click Blogs on the right > click Product blogs > click 'Desktop team / English' > click any blog post > the link to the full changelog will be at the bottom
When you select the specific product blog, I agree there should be a link to the overall changelog collection (which is missing), but the url for it is: https://blogs.opera.com/desktop/changelog-for-45/
Just change the number at the end.
It was temperamental for me in O44, I would have to go to Settings (in Opera) > Websites > Notifications > Manage exceptions... > Finished. Basically just opening the Notifications part of Settings to "awake" that element of Opera. Then Notifications would work on YouTube, for example.
Now with O45, nothing works. Not WhatApp nor any site. They most I get is beep & red dot on WhatsApp icon. No pop-up nor Windows toast notifications in Action Center, nothing. I've checked all settings in the OS too.
Already spoken of. Try the Suggestion section, you may gather support.
My concern is, if it even takes resources to load the messenger on Opera start up then for sure it should be allow to be removed. If it doesn't and only takes resources to actually load the module when you first click on it in that session then it could stay I guess. But I doubt it's the latter, otherwise notifications won't work without the initial click. Not that they work anyway.
This is what it's supposed to look like, a borderless, frameless, image
As I said, the border is another issue and have been already discussed around here in the forums.
"This is what it's supposed to look like, a borderless, frameless, image. The fact that you can't achieve that no matter what video you try, without getting black bars and space, IS THE PROBLEM."
You should have continued reading.
At this point replies like yours are not helpful, seems like your just commenting just for the sake of commenting. I noticed you the first time - but picking out one line in all of the post just shifts the attention elsewhere.
The thread about 'O45 pop-out has a border' was created 12th April, O45 Stable was released 10th May - as far as I'm concerned, unless a person is a bugtester they shouldn't be be creating a thread about it, just reporting it as a bug instead IF it hasn't been fixed by Release Candidate (just before Stable release). Who knows they may have fixed it by Stable build. Creating unnecessary threads just wastes time.
REGARDLESS my words still stand in the LITERAL sense that the 'video bars' AND 'black space' do still create a "non-frameless pop-out", NOT just the fact that is has a border. Meaning that even if it didn't have a border the problem would still be there, created by the bug that has been apparent since O41.
BTW, how to check if aspect ratio is locked or not?
I appreciate the clarification, thanks. Aspect ratio on a rectangle simply means the ratio between the length and height. If something (e.g. a video) is 16:9 (16 units wide, 9 units high), then when stretching the video player/container the length and height ratio of the video should always remain 16:9 WITHOUT creating any space between the very edge of the video image and the the edge of the player/container. Meaning when trying to stretch the a side horizontally, the container will also automatically stretch vertically to keep the same ratio of the image.
It used to be. And popout was without this stupid black border which stretches through the popout in such weird way it's hard to adjust it.
Exactly, it's an annoying bug that near enough breaks the purpose of the video pop-out feature. It's a recognised bug but hasn't been mentioned since 2 versions ago, it's not even mentioned (so far) in O46.
This is what it's supposed to look like, a borderless, frameless, image. The fact that you can't achieve that no matter what video you try, without getting black bars and space, is the problem.
In Opera 44 the issue was still there but at least there was no border, just black bars and space, meaning that once you had to stretched both the height and width of the video manually, separately, you would never touch it again (even if it was too small for another video). Now, it's even worse.
EDIT: I forgot to mention, and this is important: I truly really do appreciate all the work Opera has put in to make this incredible free browser, nothing can hold a candle to it in all seriousness. Thank You So Much.
EDIT 2: Bug report submitted
Description: Ever since introduction in O37, the aspect ratio for video pop-out has been temperamental, broken on and off, and it is still broken as the title says
Steps to reproduce: Open a YouTube video, click video pop-out. Here are a some test videos:
Vertical test video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5p5_JRAVzUs
4:3 ratio test video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EGCZQuEqsLw
16:9 ratio test video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K4DTRggiMCA
Hollywood format 20:9 (movies and trailers): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DBfsgcswlYQ
21:9 ratio test video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_vR3aW-zRo
Actual result: Video pop-out aspect ratio is not locked (since O41), player has a black border around the edges (since O45), drag to resize begins from the inside of the border (since O45)
Expected result: Video pop-out aspect ratio should be locked when resizing the video, and no border around the video
OS: Windows 10 64-bit
URL: YouTube et al.

There are probably more I've missed from O37 to O41 and O43 to O45, but the bug is still there and now with 2 new additional bugs as described above. Also notice how some of the entries have the "bugfix" symbol at the end of them. Besides, what does to these entries describe, what the bug is? what was done about the bug? or what is to be done about the bug? It's all too confusing.
Would it be more appropriate to file this here instead?: https://bugs.opera.com/wizard/desktop
Any help would be appreciated but, please, no snarky comments.
