Can't play youtube videos on but they play when embedded

  • Hello, Weird issue. When trying to access the video player does not load with ERR_CONTENT_DECODING_FAILED in developer console. However it plays fine when it is embedded on another site (HTML5 player). Now I don't recall doing anything crazy or upadating anything apart from Mac OS Security update couple of days back but I swear it worked afterwards. Issue is not present in Chromium, Safari or Firefox. I tried latest available macOS snapshot, and it still happens. Any one has any pointers please? Running Vivaldi 1.5.626.8/64 on Mac OS 10.10.5 (14F2009)

  • 1.5.633.3 is the latest snapshot version for osx – maybe try and update. And visit vivaldi://gpu to find out if hardware acceleration works.

  • Latest snapshot fixed it. Thank you.
