Audio Plays Too Quickly

  • On some websites or streams, I find that the audio plays too quickly and in a high pitch like a chipmunk.
    I have even had this happen on some video clips on YouTube.

    Whenever this happens, I copy the page address into another browser such as Firefox or Edge and it plays correctly.
    Is this a known issue? If so, is there a fix?

    I am using Vivaldi Snaphot 1.12.941.3 (64-bit).
    Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

    We need the links to such videos to check it and report as bug to Vivaldi devs.

    whew. tired from the laughter. thanks for the chipmunk reference. believe it.
    free? the links?

  • I didn't document the specific links that I had trouble with.
    When I come across one I will post it.

    The other thread about slow playback also occurs for me sometimes.

  • I’ve also seen this recently.

    On click the video (that first 30s clip plays fine, there’s no need to watch it), then select from the right their second 1m28s clip: its audio plays too quickly (it’s more noticeable a few seconds in, when they say the line “Life is what you make of it”) and finishes way before the video ends.

    Vivaldi 1.11.917.43 (Stable channel) (64-bit) on Windows 10 Pro.
