Streams are lagging on twitch with 1.13 ver. of vivaldi

  • Hello, with new version on all streams on twitch have some lags or fps drops always. Reinstalled flash player, but it didnt help. Check it in Microsoft Edge all works fine, but not on vivaldi.

  • Same issue here on Win7 but with HTML5 player (probably only on highest quality 720p and up):

    • always: video freezes or stops completely after re-focusing twitch tab, longer absence - longer stream hangs
    • often: dropping frames every several seconds causing delay in transmission
    • sometimes: falsifying sound

    Reported long time ago as VB-29892 or VB-29841. It was supposed to be ready in 1.13 final but is not.
    Also remaining videos issues on Win7 are VB-33547, VB-34361 (which also crashes Vivaldi UI).

    Also, new problem with Twitch:

    I don't know why VB-29892 is fixed. I checked on older laptop with Win7 and it's the same issue.
    After longer active tab absence, video/audio even stops but still downloading.

    Video hangs/stops completely only after re-focusing twitch tab, after at least several sec of absence, more absence time = longer hang. Dropping frames/hangs only during watching video (active tab) every several seconds.
    Try some stream/video with high bitrate and 1080p like or

    Has you board a Intel HD GPU? If yes, disable it in BIOS or in Windows Device Manager.

  • Yes it's disabled, try high bitrate videos from my post above.
