Videos show a black screen but with the sound playing



  • Hello
    When I try to watch a video, no matter the website, I get a black screen with only sound playing
    I've already tried to reinstall Vivaldi and to clear the cache/history, but it didn't seem to work

    Do you have any idea on what is causing that issue ?



  • May be such issues:

    • Windows cant decode the video because of missing Windows Media Player Codecs
      Please install Media Feature Pack
    • GPU can't decode video with hardware accelerated mode
      Perhaps you have 2 GPU (onboard and external), deactivate the onboard.
    • GPU is blacklisted by browser internals.
      Open vivaldi://flags/#ignore-gpu-blacklist
      and set to Activate

    This worked
    Thank you !
