YouTube logo in SpeeddialOpera for Windows
Speeddial recently and seemingly randomly deleted dials of some leading sites from my PC. In my case it was Twitter, Wikipedia and YouTube. I had no problem replacing them, with appropriate official logos. However, Speeddial doesn't offer a proper YouTube logo like it used to. I just get either a screen shot of the YouTube page or the default style Speeddial button saying YouTube.com in plain text.
Has anyone else noticed this? Or is it just me?
Video constantly bufferingOpera for Windows
Windows 7 Home Premium
I had a problem with some Facebook videos not playing which was solved by turning of HD video in Facebook. Now I am having a similar problem with Google Play Store Videos. They start to run in a pop up window but window stays black, buffering for ever. I have turned off Opera Turbo and changed Flash setting to turn off hardware acceleration but nothing works. I've also cleared all browser data. Any ideas?
Video problemsOpera for Windows
Just returned to Opera and was loving it. Switched over totally. Now updated to Opera 45 and many things stopped working. Video on everything other than the big sites (YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook etc.) not working. Just blank black screens all over the place. Even BBC iPlayer stopped working but that can be fixed by turning off ad blocker (no ads on BBC - wtf?). There are so many other things broken now, I don't know where to start, but video is the biggest problem. Anyone else getting this. Oh btw, mobile version (Android) also not playing video, just blank black screens. Am I going to have to go back to Firefox?
RE: [Solved] Slow initial (domain) connectionOpera for Windows
Just found out the reason... If you have Avast Antivirus, the latest update interferes with Opera page loading in a big way. It also affects normal software loading times. There seem to be quite a few complaints about it. If you are having the same problems I was having, it seems the only option is to get rid of Avast as they are claiming the update makes your internet connection more secure. Personally I'm not up for waiting 10-12 seconds for pages to load. I've switched to Sophos Antivirus and the problem is gone. You could wait to see if either Opera or Avast try to fix the issue but there's no sign of either acknowledging the problem so far.
[Solved] Slow initial (domain) connectionOpera for Windows
Since Sunday (7th May) Opera has started taking ages to make initial loading of any domain. Once connected I can click through to other pages within that domain very quickly, but initial loading takes up to ten seconds - often leading to time outs. I've tried with Opera Turbo on and off, VPN on and off and also with all add-ons disabled but nothing works. Can't think of anything that changed on Sunday to make this happen.
