Vivaldi doesn't play Twitch streams

  • Hi! 🙂 I have a little problem with Vivaldi 1.12.955.42. Since today, when I try to watch Twitch strems, the Twitch player doesn't load any video. It works on Firefox though.

    Here's my Vivaldi info from the "About" page:

  • Same problem for me on the 1.12.955.48 😕

  • I'm testing some random ones
    and they all play for me, in 1.13.1002.4, windows 7 32bit.

  • Doesn't work for me on 1.13.1002.4 😕 Weird...

  • @wolfy76700 said in Vivaldi doesn't play Twitch streams:

    I notice you have a newer flash than mine, I was still on .170, I'll update and retry, just in case.
    EDIT: works the same after updating.

    @wolfy76700 Please do not save content of vivaldi://gpu as download of HTML file. It is unreadable (for me).

  • Did you set the Twitchplayer to use html5 not flash player?

    Besides some dead bird tabs after a while I have no issues with Twitch streams.
