Videos not all working

  • Has Vivaldi committed to fix the video problem in older iMacs?

    I can see some, but not nearly all.

    Some fixes are in progress, some issues already fixed in 1.14 Snapshots.

  • Thanks, Gwen!

  • yeah, same here even running the latest snapshot did not fix problems with HTML5 video going fullscreen (see other topic), but retaining browser UI, which is undesirable, also, for this issue, it only happens on platforms such as YouTube, Vimeo etc, some video's play while others I get a classic youtube playback error, which is no youtube error at all, but a problem Vivaldi has with rendering HTML5 video on older macs, so please tell me it will finally be fixed, as this problem is specifically limited to Vivaldi-only and the concurrent stable version of Google Chrome don't seem to even have this problem at all, and as far as I can tell never even did, so google must be using a certain workaround to get html5 video's to play every time. Also, I've yet to encounter the playback issue with Netflix or Amazon Prime Video, even stranger, Prime Video streams at 1080p, full HD, on my 2010 27'' iMac, but Netflix only at 720p, with them claiming it's a limitation of chrome-based browsers, which it isn't as I am able to play youtube video's up to 4k in Chrome and Vivaldi on this mac. So I've since downgraded to Vivaldi 1.13

  • @daveflash i have given up using this lousy browser. i only use firefox. vivaldi is totally useless to watch any videos now. vivaldi has become another crap browser.

    @bartinva Would be nice if you report the issue, so Vivaldi devs can investigate a fix for older Macs.
