    Strange, videos shoudl play as hardware acceleration works on your PC.

    Do you have special video codec packages installed?

    For testing only:
    Test A)
    Enable vivaldi://flags/#disable-accelerated-video-decode
    May increase CPU load

    Test 😎
    Open vivaldi Settings → Appearance
    Disable 'Use Animation'

    Test C)
    Activate vivaldi://flags/#ignore-gpu-blacklist

  • the video works most of the time normally
    but two three times a day freezes

    Not easy to catch such issue.
    I often use a log file with some log settings in DOS command window to see what fails in a video.

    vivaldi.exe --enable-logging=stderr --vmodule=*/platform_media*=7,*/media/*=3 --user-data-dir="%TEMP%\VivaldiMediaProfile" 2> "%TEMP%\VivaldiMediaProfile\media.log"

    You may have to remember the point when this happens and send us the zipped log in bugreport.
