@taa5555 You need to activate 'Use of Hardware Accelereation' in Vivaldi Settings > Webpages
May be you graphics can not decode such video.
Please open vivaldi://gpu
and copy&paste text of these sections here:
Graphics Feature Status
@Pathduck I don't know how to do that. I looked at this here https://forum.vivaldi.net/topic/25564/allow-third-party-cookies-for-specific-websites/3 and still don't understand.
Also, mediafire is free and the best storage site out there for free so just make an account, store some random file, then see if it shows up for you.
@VEI8 You are posting multiple topics about the same subject.
@Pesala Yes. that must be it. clicking on the separator. also, I am not used to thumbnails behaving this way: all appearing, constantly visible.
I will leave them turned off.
Glad to have this figured out.
Those of you with sudden slowdown or high cpu with Vivaldi running, try this before refresh your profile:
Save your session then shutdown Vivaldi.
Go to the Default folder & delete both Current Session & Last Session file.
Restart vivaldi & restore you previous session.
This is a frequent problem with corrupted session file, usually the session file size will be doubled of normal size when it happened.
Hope this help.
Yeah this behaviour has been here for months now.
I'm not sure it is a "bug", because it really looks like browser sniffing from WhatsApp side, but Vivaldi should at least be consistent with its behaviour in normal tab, where their user agent is spoofed to make WhatsApp web work.
I agree it is quite frustrating to see that the issue in normal tabs has been solved in only a couple of snapshot, while the issue in panel is still here weeks after weeks, since the 2.5 release (not sure of the exact version though).
But I know how much dealing with bug priorities is such a hard task!
The workaround mentionned by @Komposten should work, it is exactly what I do every day too
FYI, the bug number is VB-33103.
@xyzzy That's why the feature request has been marked as "Done", because it works now. Since it doesn't work on Windows at the moment, it's just a bug. And yeah, restoring pinned tabs was removed around version 1.3 if I recall correctly, it's back for a few months now.
Unfortunately a lot of the more obscure permissions still haven't been given proper popups, as you see here.
If you file a bug report, that could be useful in keeping track of it.

Once that is done, please share the bug number (beginning with VB-). Thanks.
