Will not play nested videos on Facebook.
Vivaldi will not play nested videos on Facebook.
If someone that I follow on FB posts a video and I click on the right pointing arrow, it will not play.
It usually takes me to another page with the same picture with another right pointing arrow on it and it won't play either. It just sits there. Sometimes I get a spinning circular arrow for a couple seconds like it trying to load something and then it stops.
No sound no motion
@greg_m Can you provide an example? Also, your distro and Sys Specs.
I am using Kubuntu 16.04 on a Dell Optiplex 990 sixty four bit
@greg_m Thanks. Let me check.
The video plays with no audio.
Please file a bug report, post the number and I confirme the issue.

Thanks for helping us to make Vivaldi better!
@lamarca The video has audio silenced, probably due to copyright (it's Thunderstruck/ACDC, easily idenfied from first notes), confirmed by actually downloading the HD and SD mp4 streams, it's not Vivaldi's fault.
I get no video and no audio.....nothing at all, just a still picture with an arrow in the center
@ian-coog So that's why the mute/unmute control does not work. Thanks you. However the user got nothing.
@greg_m That is not a bug in Vivaldi. I checked it on other browsers: the video has no sound, only some seconds at end.

@gwen-dragon The video has sound, but the creator made a mistake while encoding or something. You can hear AC/DC's Thunderstruck in the first 2 and the last 2 seconds of the video. Works on Vivaldi snapshot and Firefox developer edition.
None of them play
@greg_m have you followed these instructions ?
I probably should add that I am using an Nvidia GeForce GT 610 graphics card
