[1.15.1147.32] BBC iPlayer - Videos only play audio track.

  • Just updated to latest version as prompted.
    Now when I log in to BBC website & try to play any videos, I get a (perfect) audio soundtrack play, but no video.

    Configuration below:

    Vivaldi 1.15.1147.32 (Official Build) (32-bit)

  • Same in Twitter btw - videos give audio only.
    (Unsurprisngly animated gifs are fine)

  • Could you link some specific videos. This one works perfectly for me.

  • Working OK here. Windows 10 64 bit.

    That one doesn't work for me. Nothing on iPlayer works.
    YouTube is fine, btw

    @irritable I know some videos can not be played on windows 7 with Vivaldi. May be Windows 7 has no video codec for the BBC videos.

    Please let our developers check it and report the issue.
    Please read How to Report a bug for Vivaldi carefully and then report the bug to Vivaldi bugtracker.

    thanks. The curious thing is that this worked without problems a couple of weeks ago so it does seem likely to have been a regression in one of the updates, but if that was the case I'd have expected more reports than just mine.
    really annoying.
    works fine under linux btw!

  • Works for me on Win7, V 1.15.1147.32
