Consistent crashes when trying to watch a video

  • Hi,
    I keep getting craches of Vivaldi after I tried to view a video. I already tried reinstalls and removing all traces of Vivaldi with "AppCleaner". After the cleanup Vivaldi worked for a little while until I tried to watch a video.

    @mattmunnich Thanks for the report. Unfortunately, this has become a common Vivaldi crash that's occurring on some sites when GPU hardware acceleration is disabled, either intentionally (within chrome://settings) or if your GPU has been blacklisted by the Chromium developers. The following topic has some more details:

    Re-enabling hardware acceleration or overriding the GPU blacklist should stop the crash from occurring until Vivaldi can release a proper fix to VB-29200.

    Thanks again for your report and welcome to the Vivaldi community!
