Well, apparently, despite every other browser supporting Netflix, did Opera seriously just shrug their shoulders on it and say, "oh well?" Can't support the Silverlight plugin and there's no other option for playback, so you're just going to not bother to fix the issue of not being able to play video on, arguably, the most readily used video streaming service out there? Does anyone know a workaround, or should I just ditch Opera?

So, No Netflix?Opera for Mac
RE: shockwave problemsOpera for Mac
It's getting pretty ridiculous. I thought Opera was the solution. Now it seems to be the problem - riddled with headache.
I'm running 24.0.1558.61 (which claims to be up-to-date and "Stable").
Mac OSX 10.9.4
Shockwave and Flash are latest versions
I get Shockwave Flash plugin warnings pretty constantly on sites such as anything Google, Facebook, Twitter, Hulu, Amazon. On some, such as Twitter this morning, it's every several minutes. When I click WAIT, it doesn't seem to slow anything down, but will pop up again before too long.
It's incessantly annoying. The challenge is that at least one Opera rep on this board claims that it's not a browser issue. It's a plugin issue. However, I do run Firefox and Safari on the same machine, and NEVER get this conflict, so that theory is extremely weak, and the way it was presented (we don't make plugins - contact Adobe) was pretty condescending.
I would suggest that if this many people are having the very same issue, then it IS the problem of the Opera development team, and on them to fix it. You have, potentially, a good alternative browser on your hands, so it's up to you whether you want to dismiss problems experienced by your users or actually solve them.
